Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cheltenham Town and Burton Albion face each other at Whaddon Park in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Robins aim to put an end to their six-game winless run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Burton. Head coach Michael Duff is likely to stick to 3-5-2 formation, with Joseph and May up front. The Brewers, on the other hand, did well to crush Crewe 4-1 in their last league fixture.
Burton Albion are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but given their four-game losing run on the road, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Cheltenham Town. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Pirelli Stadium, but we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out.
Highlighted Player (Chris Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
