Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wycombe Wanderers will be aiming to retain top position in the League One standings when they host Burton Albion at their Adams Park on Saturday afternoon. Wycombe did well to hold a fellow promotion-chasing side Ipswich Town to a goalless draw at the weekend, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the league to eleven games. The Chairboys are eyeing their sixth consecutive clean sheet in the League One, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Burton Albion.
The Brewers, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form. Following a shocking 1-1 draw with relegation strugglers Southend United, the team suffered a 2-0 loss to Lincoln City at home at the weekend. Important defender John-Joe O’Toole remains on the sidelined through suspension, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders.

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.
