Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Pirelli Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Burton Albion and Plymouth, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 42. The Brewers should not find it hard to secure the League One survival, while the Pilgrims are still vying for a spot in top two. Since Burton failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Charlton Athletic and Morecambe, we do not believe that home win should be considered.
To make things even worse for the home side, midfielder Conor Shaughnessy misses the match through suspension. Plymouth, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Oxford United. The Pilgrims are more of a team than the Brewers, and we predict that the visiting side will pick up all three points from the match. All Galloway, Cooper, Scarr, Lewis, and Hardie should miss out with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Lucas Akins):
After making his first football steps in Huddersfield Town youth academy, Lucas Akins made his first-team debut against Northampton Town as he came as a substitute to replace Luke Beckett. However, he made no more than five appearances for Huddersfield Town as he was sent on loan to Nortwich Victoria.
After spending two seasons at Hamilton Academical, the winger, who was born on 25 February 1989, joined Tranmere Rovers in July, 2010. Lucas Atkins scored 7 goals in 77 appearances for the club and in 2012 he signed a contract with Stevenage. The English footballer played 77 league games for the Boro and he scored 13 goals for the club.
During the 2013/2014 campaign he was on Burton Albion’s radar and at the end of the season he joined the Pirelli Stadium outfit. Lucas Atkins enjoys playing football, but dancing is considered his passion as well. His main position is right wing, but he plays as both centre forward and left winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
