          Exeter City vs Burton Albion Preview, Tips & Stats

          Burton Albion make the trip to St James Park to take on Exeter City this Saturday in League One. Both sides sit in the bottom half of the table and need a big three points to either push them towards the top half of the table or safely away from the relegation zone.

          Exeter currently sit 16th in League One after 38 games. The Grecians have 21 wins, eight draws and 18 losses, leaving them on 44 points, six points from the top half of the table.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Exeter have one win, two draws and two losses.

          Exeter managed just one shot on target against Lincoln, despite having more of the possession as Joe Taylor scored the only goal of the game in the 67th minute to give Lincoln the 1 - 0 win. The Grecians took the lead the next time out against Fleetwood, with Vincent Harper giving Exeter the 1 - 0 lead at halftime. However, in the second half Promise Omochere scored for Fleetwood to rescue a 1 - 1 draw.

          Peterborough opened the scoring early against Exeter, with Ephron Mason-Clark finding the back of the net in the fourth minute. Tom Carroll did equalise before the halftime whistle, but a goal from Kwame Poku grabbed the 2 - 1 win for Peterborough. Paris Maghoma gave Bolton the 1 - 0 lead at halftime but a quick double from Sonny Cox gave Exeter the 2 - 1 lead just five minutes into the second half. However, Eoin Toal scored in the 87th minute to grab a 2 - 2 draw for Bolton.

          The last time out for Exeter was against Shrewsbury Town. Jordan Shipley was sent off for Shrewsbury in the sixth minute which opened the floodgates with Will Aimson, Luke Harris and Jack Aitchison all scoring in the 3 - 0 win for Exeter.

          Burton sit just below Exeter in 19th in League One. In 37 games, Burton have ten wins, nine draws and 18 losses which leaves them on 39 points, six points above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Burton have one draw and four losses.

          A poor first half saw both Marc Leonard and Mitch Pinnock scoring to give Northampton Town the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Burton only had three shots on target for the entire 90 minutes and slumped to a 2 - 0 loss. The next time out for Burton was against Carlisle and despite The Brewers having more of the possession and ten more shots, Paul Huntington scored the only goal of the game in the 27th minute to give Carlisle the 1 - 0 win.

          The visit to Cheltenham saw just two shots on target for the entire 90 minutes. Burton were responsible for both of these shots but they failed to convert either of them as both teams slumped to a 0 - 0 draw. After a goalless first half, Ricky-Jade Jones opened the scoring for Peterborough early in the second half. Ademola Ola-Adebomi drew Burton level with 20 minutes to go but an 88th minute goal from Josh Knight and a 96th minute goal from Jonson Clarke-Harris gave Peterborough the 3 - 1 win.

          The most recent outing for Burton was against Portsmouth. Kusini Yengi’s penalty gave Portsmouth the lead in the first half added time and Kusini scored again to double the lead in the second half. John Brayford did get on the scoresheet for Burton, but it wasn’t enough and Portsmouth secured the 2 - 1 win.

          This will be the tenth meeting between Exeter and Burton, with the first meeting coming back in 2012. Burton have the better record in the fixture with five wins in comparison to Exeter’s two wins, with the other two games ending in a draw.
