Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Burton will be aiming to put an end to their six-game winless run in all competitions when they take on Exeter in the League One round 6. The Brewers have been struggling to find their best form, but their display in a 1-1 draw with promotion hopefuls was anything but poor. Mason Bennett limped off with injury in the last league match, with fellow forward Josh Gordon likely to replace him in the starting XI.
The Grecians, meanwhile, aim to build on the EFL Cup triumph over Stevenage. Exeter are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions and given their signs of improvement up front, both teams to score seems like a good betting option for Saturday’s clash. As for the visiting team, both Demetri Mitchell and Dion Rankine are back to the starting XI after the duo was rested in the EFL Cup victory.
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.
