- Pirelli Stadium
- Burton have lost ten of their 17 home matches this season.
- Shrewsbury drew 1-1 with leaders Hull at the weekend and have lost just two of their last ten league starts, winning four.
- Town have lost just one of their last five matches on the road (W2, D2).
Side with the Shrews at the Pirelli Stadium
The last three meetings between these sides have finished all square, however it’s visitors Shrewsbury who are taken to break that sequence at the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Burton would have been difficult to oppose in this fixture had it been played a week or so ago, as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men racked up six victories on the spin between mid-February and mid-March.
Albion appear to have paid for their efforts though over the past few days with fixtures against Blackpool and the MK Dons yielding just a single point, and the Shrews look best placed to come out on top after holding leaders Hull to a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
The Shrews have lost just two of their last ten league matches, winning four – a run which has included just one defeat from five on the road.
Considering Burton have lost ten of their 17 outings at the Pirelli Stadium this term, Steve Cotterill’s side look worth a punt for small stakes and we’re also tipping up a 1-2 score-line. While the visitors are backed to edge matters, Burton should get themselves on the score-sheet as they’ve failed to bag in just five of their 35 league games this season.
