Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Pirelli Stadium will host Saturday’s League One game between Burton Albion and Charlton Athletic, the two teams who were beaten by Derby County and Charlton respectively at the weekend. The Brewers are eager to record their first win of the year, but they will have a big fish to fry against the capital club. Steve Seddon suffered an injury in the last league match, with Mustapha Carayol likely to replace him in the starting eleven.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league matches. Charlton Athletic are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Staffordshire. In the first half of the season the two sides played out a 1-1 draw and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. New signing Tyreeq Bakinson should keep his place in Charlton’s starting XI, while Chem Campbell returned to Wolves.
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.
