Burton Albion v Derby County Preview, Championship, 26th August 2016

Burton Albion have had a tough start to their new experience of the championship having lost their opening two matches, but have now seemed to have steadied the ship having drawn and won their following two matches and with a home fixture this Friday night against Derby County, the players and fans will be hopefull that their side can get at least something from this one.

Derby County have also had a bit of a poor start to their new season, but have only lost just the one game which came away from home against Barnsley 2-0, other than that the visitors have drawn two and won one of their other three matches played.

However, the main concern at the club seems to be scoring goals as with just one goal scored from their opening four matches, it does seem that Derby County are going to struggle to be in contention for any kind of of promotion until they find a striker that can bang in the goals.

Burton Albion Team News :

The hosts have almost a full squad for this game but there are concerns over skipper John Mousinho who is suffering from a tigh hamstring pull and he will under take a late fitness test to see if he can participate. Jackson Irvine is also expected to be available despite having been substituted at half time against Liverpool in the league cup midweek.

Derby County Team News :

The visitors will be without Jeff Hendrick who is still out receiving treatment for a hamstring injury, but both Chris Martin and Tom Ince will all be recalled to the starting lineup having been rested in the midweek epic penalty shoot out victory against Carlisle.

Burton Albion v Derby County Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

This will obviously be a game that Burton Albion will be desperate to win as with having not won a single game in the last four meetings against Derby County all of which were friendlies, to be able to come away with the 3pts in a match that really matters would be a great achievement for the club.

To do so they need to defend a lot better than what we have seen so far this season from their opening four matches in which they have conceded 8 goals, add to that the other 8 goals conceded in their two league cup games and we do start to see that their defence if far from solid.

However, Derby County are going through a very tough time of it at the moment when it comes to scoring goals as they have managed to score just once in their opening four league matches !

Strikers Darren Bent and Chris Martin are both still looking for their first goals of the new season and the longer they go without scoring, the more pressure from the fans they will receive.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for this match to see between 2 or 3 total goals scored as I am finding it quite difficult to select a clear winner of the game as with Burton struggling defensively and Derby struggling on the attack, there are strong indications that this game could finish all square at 1-1.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Burton Albion midfielder Tom Taylor to score the first goal of this game as with being the clubs current top goalscorer with 3 this season he looks fantastic value at the current odds available.
