Burton are buzzing after an impressive start to the campaign that has seen them take seven points from an available nine and eliminate Sheffield United from the Capital One Cup. Moreover, three of the Brewer’s points were gleaned from a tremendous 3-2 success at classy promotion hopefuls Fleetwood and so they’re clearly a force to be reckoned with at the moment.
This weekend they entertain a Bury side that looks set to struggle this term and it’s hard to work out why Gary Rowett’s side are priced at an odds-against 21/20 by Coral to continue their excellent run at the expense of the Shakers.
Beaten by Burton a week ago, Fleetwood have the quality to bounce back at Hartlepool. The hosts have done little to suggest that they’re anything but candidates for a relegation battle, their only point coming against goal-shy York last Saturday and it’s easy to see the Cod Army, at 13/10 with Ladbrokes, turning Pools over reasonably comfortably.
Finally, Bristol Rovers are still waiting for their first victory but they have an ideal opportunity to get it this week as they entertain York. City’s only away match ended in defeat at Dagenham and Redbridge while their lack of cutting edge means they’ve scored just once in four league and cup outings.
Nigel Worthington’s men look there for the taking then and the Pirates are solid bet at 5/4 courtesy of Stan James to send them home empty-handed.
