Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After suffering a 2-1 loss at Fleetwood in their opener, Burton will be looking to get back on course when they host Accrington at their Pirelli Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Brewers looked very nervous in the opening match of the season, with John Joe O’Toole being sent off in the stoppage time. Seeing that the Ireland midfielder misses the Accrington game through suspension, home win should not be considered.
The Red and Whites, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Peterborough. Accrington did well to shock the promotion-chasing side in their opener, but it has to be noted that Peterborough dominated the match. Anyhow, we believe that the visitors should take advantage of the current situation in the home team’s dressing room. Saturday’s match will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Edwards):
Despite being born in Singapore on November 17, 1993, Ryan Edwards is eligible to represent Australia in international matches. The 175-cm-tall midfielder has 18 caps with Australia U-23 and it has to be noted that he played for the Socceroos at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

He made his debut with the Brewers in the League One on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances at both central and right midfield as well.
