Tip Reasoning

Brighton will be eager to return to winning ways here after a series of below-par performances. They’ve conceded 3 goals in each of their last 3 games in all competitions, although all of those were away from home. Back at the Amex and against struggling Burton, they ought to get back to winning ways.

Those poor defensive showings were most unlike them but can probably be put down to a few factors. Their FA Cup loss at Lincoln was mostly due to their much-changed team while the absence of key centre-back Lewis Dunk hurt them at Brentford last time out. Back on home soil and against one of the league’s lowest scorers, they should be much more solid.

Brighton have won a huge 79% of their home league games this term and have won their last 6 matches at the Amex in all competitions, conceding just 2 goals. Therefore suggestions that their promotion challenge is faltering may be a little premature. They showed plenty of fighting spirit and attacking quality to fight back for a 3-3 draw at Brentford and have plenty of tools to cause the Brewers problems here. One of them is Frenchman Anthony Knockaert. He’s the sort of player who can produce a moment of magic at any point and with 3 goals in his last 3 home games, backing Knockaert to score anytime at 7/4 could be worth a flutter.

Burton have picked up a couple of huge wins in recent weeks but their overall recent form is poor. They’ve lost 9 of their last 12 matches in all competitions and 53% of their away Championship games have ended in defeat. They average just 0.73 points per game away from the East Midlands and have conceded in 93% of those matches. Therefore they could have problems at both ends of the pitch against a side of Brighton’s quality and a relatively comfortable home win looks the most likely outcome.

Backing Brighton -1.0 Asian Handicap at 1.85 therefore could be the way to go.
