Burton Albion will be hoping to end the weekend in the top six as they travel to 23rd place Crewe Alexandra who are so far living up to people’s expectations of possible relegation. Tipped as 6/4 to face the drop, Crewe will be hoping their fortunes will turn soon.
For the home side, they have yet to taste victory so far this season in the league. After six games, they have only amassed two points from a possible 18 available. The Railwaymen have so far conceded 8 goals in those games, which gives them an average of 1.3 goals conceded over those six games. Goals for the team have been hard to come by also, having scored twice in the opening six games. That leaves an average of 0.2 goals for the home side heading into this game.
In their previous league game against Shrewsbury Town, they provided themselves with a confident performance. Despite only picking up a point, Crewe had the majority of the play with 19 shots on goal and on any other day they perhaps win that game.
Burton Albion have made a good start to their league campaign. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is in his second spell in charge of the club and his side are currently 7th in Sky Bet League One after seven games. Three wins and three draws with a defeat, have left Burton with 12 points from an available 21. The Brewers have scored the same amount as they have conceded with six in total.
Those stats leave the side with an average of 0.85 goals scored after seven games, with the same average for that they have conceded. The form guide and recent history between the two clubs suggests, this game is leading towards a Burton Albion win. Crewe haven’t beaten their visitors in their last five encounters with them.
Crewe vs Burton prediction: Burton Albion to win.
