Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Shrewsbury Town at Montgomery Waters Meadow, Burton Albion will be looking to start a new winning run in the League One when they take on Bristol Rovers at their Pirelli Stadium on Matchday 6. The Brewers aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth, therefore, we predict that they will go for a win in Saturday’s football match.
The Pirates, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Tranmere Rovers and Oxford United, but seeing that they have yet to find the net on the road in the 2019/2020 season, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. Burton Albion are eager to record their first home win of the season and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.
Highlighted Player (Damien McCrory):
Damien McCrory is an Irish footballer who plays for Burton Albion. The winger, who is capable of playing as full-back as well, was born on 22 February, 1990 and he began his youth career at Plymouth Argyle. However, he did not make a senior debut for the club as he was sent on loan to Port Vale in 2008 and then to Grimsby Town in 2009.
After ending his loan spell with Grimsby Town, Damien McCrory joined Dagenham & Redbridge in February 2010 and he made 76 league appearances for the club. He scored one goal for the club during his spell at Victoria Road and in June 2012 he signed a two-year contract with Burton Albion. The pacey winger scored five goals in 32 appearances for the club in the 2014/2015 campaign and he played no less than 39 games for the Brewers in the 2015/2016 League One campaign.
His showings certainly helped the team book their place in the Championship at the end of the season. Speaking of his international career, McCrory made two appearances for Republic of Ireland U18 team and he has three caps for Ireland U19 team.
Highlighted Team (Bristol Rovers):
Established back on August 1, 1883, Bristol Rovers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. Bristol Rovers were formed after a meeting at the Eastville Restaurant under the name of Black Arabs after the Arabs rugby team.
This name, though, lasted no more than one season as the club was renamed Eastville Rovers in 1884. Five years later the club’s name was officially changes to Bristol Rovers. Nicknamed the Pirates, Bristol Rovers welcome their opponents at Memorial Stadium Horfield, the venue with the capacity of 12,296. Bristol Rovers are well known for their blue and white home kit, but they are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels.
Ricky Lambert, who used to play for the likes of Southampton and Liverpool in the Premier League, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable footballers. It has to be noted that Lambert scored 51 goals in 128 appearances for the Pirates in the league.
