Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bolton will look to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Cambridge United when they welcome Burton to their University of Bolton Stadium on Monday evening. The Trotters made a promising start to the season, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-six finish. Both Liam Edwards and Xavier Amaechi are likely to miss the game with injuries for the home team.
The Brewers, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Experienced defender Michael Mancienne, who limped off with injury in the 1-1 draw with Cheltenham, is unlikely to feature against Bolton. In their last encounter in the League Two the two sides played out a 2-2 draw.
Highlighted Player (Gethin Jones):
Born in Perth, Australia on October 13, 1995, Gethin Jones is a professional footballer who plays for Carlisle United in the League Two as a defender. Jones is a product of the Wrexham football school, but he played for Everton at youth level as well.
The pacey right-back made only one appearance for the Toffees as he played against Krasnodar in the Europa League 2013/2014 season. Gethin Jones played for the likes of Plymouth Argyle (loan), Barnsley (loan), Fleetwood Town, and Mansfield Town (loan) as well before joining his current club Carlisle United. Jones is eligible to play for Australia and Wales despite playing for the Wales U17, U19, and U21 teams in the past.
He made his League Two debut with Carlisle United in a 3-2 win over Stevenage on September 14, 2019. Jones’ main position is right-back, but he is used as both right midfielder and left-back as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Burton):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034.
Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield.
Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
