Wolves v Burton Albion Past Meetings

This will be only the third competitive fixture between the two clubs, with neither side ahead on a head-to-head record with one win, one draw and one defeat each.

Wolves ran out comfortable 4-0 victors at the Pirelli Stadium back in September with goals from Diogo Jota, Roman Saiss, Ruben Vinagre and Leo Bonatini.

The clash between the two at Molineux last season finished 1-1 with William Miller netting a goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time for the Brewers.


Wolves v Burton Albion Stats

Wolves lead the Championship table but only by three points having seen their lead at the top dramatically cut by second-placed Cardiff City.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side bounced back with a 3-0 victory at home to Reading on Tuesday following their 4-1 hammering at third-placed Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Midlands club have the second best home record in the division with 42 points from 18 matches – only the Bluebirds have accumulated more points at home, but have played a game more.

Conversely, Burton are second from bottom in the standings, wedged between basement club Sunderland and Birmingham City – and sit three points from safety.

Oddly though, Albion are much stronger away from home than at the Pirelli Stadium – with 20 of their 30 points coming on their travels – more away points than eight other sides in the division.


Wolves v Burton Albion Team News

Wolves will continue with their 3-4-3 line-up which is headed by Benik Afobe and flanked by Helder Costa and Diogo Jota, although Ivan Cavaleiro and Leo Bonatini are both hopeful of starts having both been dropped for the clash with Reading.

Burton are expected to continue to deploy their 4-1-4-1 formation with the experienced Darren Bent leading the line, with Marvin Sordell and Lloyd Dyer among the goal threats for Nigel Clough’s side.


Reason for Wolves v Burton Albion Bets

Neither side are in-form yet the home side’s 3-0 victory over Reading on Tuesday night should put them back on track for automatic promotion.

Possessing home advantage and a significant advantage in terms of points and quality on the pitch should make this a relatively straightforward home win for Wolves.

Burton have failed to score in six of their last seven matches – a run which has included three scoreless draws.

They are a side who are hard to break down but offer little goal threat, meaning that this will be a low scoring game with the home side doing enough to continue their promotion push.
