Tip Reasoning

  • Sunderland are on a five-match winless run
  • Burton haven’t lost on any of their last four visits to Sunderland
  • Burton won the reverse fixture 1-0 in August

Black Cats have blown it in monumental style

When Lee Johnson collected League One’s Manager of the Month award for December, his Sunderland team had their eyes set firmly on an automatic promotion spot. The Black Cats went the entire month of December unbeaten in the league, and at that point, failing to make to top six would have seemed inconceivable too many.

Fast forward just six weeks and Sunderland have blown up in monumental fashion. The Black Cats have won just once so far in 2022 – it’s now one win in their last eight games and they have lost four of their five matches. Sunderland remarkably now find themselves sat outside the play-off spots on goal difference and welcome a Burton side, who can certainly be seen as a bit of a bogey side, to the Stadium of Light on Tuesday. 

Free hit for Burton who have an impressive record in this fixture

Burton’s remaining fixtures are almost all free hits. Burton are in no danger of going down and have no realistic chance of making the play-offs. They can lean on a fantastic record in this fixture as they head to the north-east on Tuesday.

Burton have lost just one of their last seven games against Sunderland and their record is even more impressive at this venue. Burton have made four visits to the Stadium of Light in their history, they have yet to taste defeat – their current recorded is two wins and two draws and are fancied to go well at a price on Tuesday.

The main selection for this game will be Burton to win in the outright market. The Brewers seem overpriced against a Sunderland side who must surely be devoid of confidence. The correct score prediction for this game will be a 2-1 Burton win. Burton’s two previous victories at this venue have resulted in this score line.
