Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sunderland will be looking to keep their 100% record in the new League One season intact when they take on Burton at Pirelli Stadium. The Black Cats are determined to return to the Championship, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to turn the dream into reality. Ross Stewart, who has been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season, is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors. Defenders Arbenit Xhemalji and Jordan Willis remain in the recovery room, while Luke O’Nien has been tested positive for coronavirus.
The Brewers, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive league win as well, meaning that an entertaining encounter is on the cards. Given Burton’s display in the triumph over Ipswich Town, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Burton defender Deji Oshilaja has yet to recovery from his injury, while fit-again trio Mancienne – Bostwick – Amadi-Holloway is pushing for a start.
