Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in eight of Burton’s last nine games
  • Sheffield Wednesday have won three of their last four matches
  • Burton’s last five victories have all come against sides positioned 14th or lower

Owls finding form at just the right time

Three wins in their last four matches has seen Darren Moore’s Sheffield Wednesday side propel themselves firmly into the shake-up for a top six spot come the end of the season. Victories in the last two weeks against Plymouth, Ipswich and Morecambe have seen the Owls move into 8th place, just four points off the play-off places, with a game in hand on 6th place Oxford. The top two is probably out of reach for Darren Moore’s men, but they seem to be making a well-timed run to grab play-off berth. They are fancied to go well on Saturday.

Burton struggle against sides in the top half

Burton have won five of their last eleven League One matches, which taken at face value, is a very respectable return. However, Burton’s last five League One victories have all come against sides positioned 14th or below in the table, three of them came against sides in the bottom four. The Brewers last four games against sides in the top six have all been defeats. I think they may come unstuck once again, against a Wednesday who have an undoubted class edge and have hit a good patch of form lately.

Harbour hopes of a home goal

I am confident of an away win on Saturday, but I am also expecting goals and fancy the home side to score at least one in defeat. Both teams have scored in eight of Burton’s last nine matches and a repeat is likely on Saturday against a Sheffield Wednesday team who have only kept four clean sheets in their 15 away League One matches this season.

My main selection for this game will be Sheffield Wednesday to win and both teams to score in the match. In the correct score market, I will go for a 2-1 away win.
