Sunderland vs Burton Albion Match Preview
Burton Albion may just be in good enough form to deal a blow to Sunderland’s chances of being automatically promoted from League One this season.
The Black Cats will go second in the table if they avoid defeat at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday and also still have a game in hand on their main rivals for second place, Barnsley and Portsmouth – that’s on the assumption that Luton are away and gone at the top.
Jack Ross’ side have compiled an impressive unbeaten run since Christmas and are yet to be beaten on Wearside in the league this season, while they have responded superbly to the agony of losing the Checkatrade Trophy final in a penalty shootout with two away wins.
However, this will be far from easy against a Burton side who have hit a purple patch, albeit one that has almost certainly come too late to carry them into the play-offs.
The Brewers have won four of their last five games, culminating in a terrific 3-1 success over Barnsley on Saturday which ironically did Sunderland a big favour.
Nigel Clough’s side will be full of confidence for this journey to the North East and having also won on their only ever previous visit to this stadium last term, they look worth keeping on side.
