Burton Albion vs Luton Match Preview
Luton sit at the top of the League One table as they travel to Burton for their Matchday 45 clash on Saturday afternoon but the unpredictable run and dropping points on the regular lately sees the pressure mounting, with points at Pirelli Stadium now an absolute must.
Hatters sit three points clear of 2nd placed Barnsley and five clear of 3rd placed Portsmouth (who have a game in hand), as Wimbledon denied them points in a 2-2 draw with a last-minute equalizer from Steve Seddon earlier this week. They’ve bagged just one win in four outings and Michael Harford’s men now surely have a lot on their mind.
Burton will want to do damage despite no high stakes on their end but they haven’t really seen the best form recently either, as Portsmouth (1-2) and Southend United (3-2) both snatched points in thrilling clashes over the past seven days. Pompey only netted a last-minute winner and bouncing back from it feels like a tough task, with a very tough challenge looming.
Brewers have thus seen a very solid streak of three wins in front of the home fans ended but we’ve still seen them scoring on the regular, which promises a solid contest for the points on the day – despite the visitors now searching for a double over the rivals this term.
We will back them to it and go for Luton to snatch all three points now too, where an Away win comes at 10/11 with bet365 and looks the best value in the market with their obvious need to bounce back to the winning ways here.
However, we don’t feel it will be smooth sailing and Burton should do their bit in making this a thriller contest too, as we also back a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/11 with Paddy Power. We’ve seen both sides scoring and conceding in four of their last respective last five outings, which feels like further evidence for such a bet.
