Burton Albion v Oldham Athletic Preview, League One, Saturday 26th March 2016.

Saturday lunchtime football this weekend witnesses top of League One side Burton Albion at home to relegation fighting side Oldham Athletic at the Pirelli Stadium. Apart from the one loss recently we have seen Burton Albion do extremely well and currently sit six points atop the table ahead of Wigan Athletic.

With just nine games remaining it has to be in the bag for Burton Albion who do have a lot of easy games coming up until the end of the season. They do however still have some tough sides to play will Millwall away from home the more notable. Then they also have second placed Wigan, Gillingham and Barnsley at home who are all fighting for promotion.

Oldham Athletic are in serious danger of being relegated come the end of the season with them currently sitting in twenty second position. They are only one point adrift Blackpool who sit just outside the red zone and then three points off Fleetwood Town who are above them.

The away side obviously come into this fixture desperately needing a win although the bookmakers are not fancying their chances come Saturday. With just the one win in the last five games played Oldham do really need to start winning games again much like what we see in February where they managed to win twice and draw the other three games played throughout the month.

Burton Albion Team News:

With Akins and Duffy the clubs joint top scorers in all competitions the fans will be hoping they continue their goalscoring ways come Saturday against Oldham Athletic. We could of seen new loan signing Tyler Walker make his debut on Saturday after he signed for the rest of the season after playing fifteen times for Nottingham Forest, but instead he is on international duty with the Endland U20’s squad.

Oldham Athletic Team News:

Oldham Athletic will be without loan pair Timmy Thiele and Matt Palmer due to the ineligibility to play against their parent club. Carl Winchester should play although is on standby for Northern Ireland. Another defender who has been missing is that of Cameron Dummigan who was sidelined due to an illness.

Burton Albion v Oldham Athletic Preview Head to Head Statistics:

Sadly we only have the two games played out against each other over time with both clubs experiencing a win. The last time Oldham Athletic beat top of the league Burton Albion was way back in 2011 when the pair met in the FA Cup, in which the game ended 3 – 1. Saturdays fixture will be the second time the two have played this season and we see the home side as the clear favourites to win the match.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

With just the two games played we only have the five goals recorded. This is of course going to give us a goals per game average of 2.5 which is always a good statistic to consider when looking at the positions of both clubs. The below option I feel is a solid selection for Saturday lunchtimes game.

Burton Albion are flying high at the top of the table right now and I personally cannot see anyone knocking them off their perch by the end of the season. Oldham Athletic however really shouldn’t be where they are in the table with their squad suggesting that they should be far higher up the table than what they are currently.

Burton Albion v Oldham Athletic Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

League One action this Saturday Lunchtime can be viewed live on Sky Sports 1 and in High Definition and features league leaders Burton Albion verses Oldham Athletic who are currently facing the drop to League Two. Burton Albion to have some fairly easy games coming up with the toughest likely to be Millwall away from home at the end of this month.

The league leaders do face a number of promotion chasing sides also and I feel Wigan Athletic, who are currently in second position could be the hardest, even though the game is played at Burton’s ground. With the club being six points clear currently it certainly is a nice cousin to have with only nine games left remaining of the season.

Oldham Athletic really shouldn’t be as low as they are currently in the league epsecially when they had such a great month of February. Having won twice and drawing the three games we can specifically note the clubs great win at home against promotion chasing side Gillingham. They are however back to losing ways having only won the once in their last five fixtures in the league.

This is a must win for Oldham Athletic as time is running out for the club if they wish to stay in this division. The clubs next two games could also be vital with six points a very realistic target. They then face Walsall and Barnsley who are both in a great position to earn promotion, especially Walsall being only six points off the top.

My predictions for this game is to back Burton Albion for the win, although I do believe both clubs have it in them to potentially score during the match. So lets go for both teams to score and Burton Albion to win as the banker bet. The next I am going for is in form striker Lucas Akins to score and once again for Burton Albion to win the fixture.
