Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After suffering back-to-back losses to the likes of Blackpool and Shrewsbury Town on the road, Peterborough United will be looking to return to winning ways in the League One when they host Burton Albion at their Weston Homes Stadium. Since the Posh aim to stay in the race for automatic promotion to the Championship, we are positive that they are going to stick to their attacking style of play against Burton Albion.
Peterborough United have been scoring goals for fun on home soil in the 2019/2020 season, and they are surely capable of beating Burton Albion, who sit in the 15th position in the standings ahead of Matchday 19. You should bear in mind that the Posh netted 2+ goals in each of their last seven home fixtures in the English third tier. Even though striker Ivan Toney misses the match through suspension, home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Maddison):
After spending his youth career at Newcastle United, Marcus Maddison signed a professional contract with the Magpies in the 2012/2013 season. However, he was immediately loaned to Blyth Spartans where he scored one goal in two appearances.
In 2013 the pacey winger was released by Newcastle United, signing a deal with Scottish club St. Jonstone. Due to a hunger for a first-team football Marcus Maddison returns to England in the summer of 2013, signing a contract with Conference Premier club Gateshead. The 180-cm tall footballer scored 13 goals in 34 appearances for the club before joining Peterborough United in 2014.
Maddison has established himself as a first-team regular at Peterborough and he is widely expected to play an important role in the London Road Stadium outfit in the 2019/2020 League One season. The English footballer, who is capable of playing as both winger and attacking midfielder, was born in Durham on September 26, 1993.
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.
