Burton Albion welcome newly-promoted Cheltenham Town to the Pirelli Stadium on Friday evening for each team’s fifth match of this new League One campaign.
Burton Albion will be very happy with their start to the season, having won three and lost just one, including a 1-0 home win against Sunderland, leaving them sixth in the table but just a single point off the top.
Having lost their EFL Cup match against Oxford United on penalties after a 1-1 draw within 90 minutes, Burton have drawn MK Dons at home in the EFL Trophy, which will be played just four days after this League One fixture against Cheltenham Town.
Cheltenham won’t be too upset with their first four results having only just been promoted into League One from the fourth tier of English football. Four points on the board after one win, one draw and two losses leaves them sitting in 18th place, however, that is only a point from 12th and three points from 7th.
The Robins managed to see off fellow League One side Bristol Rovers in their preliminary EFL Cup match, beating them 0-2 at the Memorial Stadium thanks to two second-half goals. As a result, Cheltenham have drawn Gillingham in the next round, and will also play Bristol Rovers again in the EFL Trophy.
Head to head, Burton Albion and Cheltenham Town’s last meetings were in League Two during the 2014/15 campaign, where Burton got the better of the two sides, beating Cheltenham 1-0 at the Pirelli Stadium and 1-3 away at Whaddon Road.
Odds For Burton Albion v Cheltenham Town
Burton Albion, who have established themselves in League One over recent years, are the favourites heading into this league fixture against Cheltenham Town, who have only just been promoted to this level.
The current prices for the match result stand at around 6/5 for a Burton Albion home win, 12/5 for a match draw and the same price for a Cheltenham Town win. Burton may be favourites, but the result really could go either way in this clash.
If you were hoping for some longer odds so that your money could go a little further, it may be worth wagering on the ‘result and both teams to score’ market, where if both teams score but your selection wins, you’ll get much bigger profits as a result. Here are the current odds for that market:
Alternatively, or alongside these bets, you could look a little further ahead and place a bet on who you think may win the League One title this year. After four games, Burton are currently 33/1 to achieve this, while Cheltenham Town are 200/1 and technically tipped for relegation. Here are the top 5 favourites:
