Bet of the Day: Back Burton to get off the mark this Friday
If Burton Albion v Birmingham City is half as good as last week’s Friday night football, then fans attending the Pirelli Stadium could be in for a treat.
Nigel Clough’s side welcome Harry Redknapp’s charges to Staffordshire in the hope of breaking a run of three successive league defeats.
The Brewers have only notched once in those three games, but, in their defence, they’ve had a tough start. With games against Cardiff City, Hull City, and Middlesbrough, it’s arguable they expected ‘nul points’.
However, there’s value in backing the hosts to bounce back with Coral.
Home win backable
If Nigel Clough is to keep his side up again this season, these are the games he’ll have to win.
Thankfully, Burton have a good record against Birmingham with four wins from as many meetings against the blue half of the West Midlands.
Albion also tend to do well on home turf with nine wins and four draws last season.
Coral’s 15/8 about them in the win-draw-win market looks value.
These two sides don’t look too prolific in the early stages of this season.
As stated above, Burton have managed to score once in three league games, while the Blues have also managed a solitary goal.
The 17/5 on Burton To Win To Nil looks nice, too.
