Burton vs Birmingham predictions and betting tips for the Friday night Championship fixture this week including a match prediction and anytime goalscorer tip.
There’s Championship action on Friday night from the Pirelli as bottom club Burton host Harry Redknapp’s Birmingham. Will the Brewers be able to pick up their first win of the season? We’ve picked out our three best betting tips and predictions for the 7:45pm kick off in the Championship.
It’s been far from an ideal start for Nigel Clough’s Burton who were defeated again on Tuesday night going down to a Britt Assombalonga double at the Riverside. The Brewers were without Jackson Irvine for that clash and weren’t able to keep 11 men on the field with Hope Akpan the latest to see red. Clough is looking to strengthen in the transfer window and has been linked with a return for Cauley Woodrow and they desperately need the firepower after drawing blanks in two of their three matches.

Meanwhile, all is not well at St Andrews with ‘Arry left visibly frustrated after his side’s failure to create meaningful chances at home to Bolton. The boss said he was delighted when his side held on for a point and appears desperate for improvement. Crucially, he hasn’t used the phrase ‘down to the bare bones’ yet. They did pick up a victory against Bristol City last weekend but were lucky to hold on with Bristol City striking the woodwork late on.
Neither of these sides come into this game full of confidence and a low scoring draw may be the sensible outcome. The first of our Burton vs Birmingham predictions is the match to end a draw. The odds for this are 9/4 at Bet Victor. Get a free accumulator bet every week at Bet Victor.
