  • Venue: Pirelli Stadium (Burton upon Trent)

In the coming weeks, the fate of many teams will be decided. Two of them are Burton and Port Vale, as both teams are fighting to avoid relegation. Burton are four points above the relegation zone, while Port Vale are six points behind safety, so the upcoming tie has huge importance for both teams. 

Burton came in the most important part of the season in a terrible form. In the last six matches, they won only one point. In the previous game, Burton lost 1-0 on the road against Exeter. Although Martin Patterson's team lost in that one, they probably deserved more as they played well in the second half. Maybe that solid performance will shake things up in Burton and will help them play better on Saturday versus Port Vale. 

Port Vale are even in a worse form. They have four draws and ten losses in the last 14 matches and Port Vale are looking hopeless at the moment. Last weekend, Darren Moore's team lost 2-0 at home against Oxford United. That was another game in which Port Vale struggled offensively, and eventually, they suffered another loss that brought them a step closer to League Two. 

Burton vs Port Vale pick: Under 2.5 goals

Burton scored only two goals in the last six matches. Also, four of those six games went under 2.5 goals. On the other hand, Port Vale scored only one goal in the last four games. Under 2.5 goals should be the best bet for this tie.

Burton team news

Burton's manager, Martin Paterson, is appointed in January. Still, he took only 11 points from 12 matches. Burton's owner, Ben Robinson, talked about Paterson's future after the last loss. He said that Paterson is on a deal until the end of the season, but he hopes that the head coach will stay in Burton if he avoids relegation. 

Burton will be only without Thomas Hamer in the upcoming game versus Port Vale.

Port Vale

Port Vale team news

Port Vale's head coach, Darren Moore, came to the club in February. Moore came as a savior, but Port Vale won only two points in eight games under him. Still, we have to be realistic in that, in the previous weeks, Port Vale had too many problems.

A few days ago, Darren Moore talked about the missing players. He said that forward Uche Ikpeazu started with light training and could return soon. Also, full-back Mitch Clark returned after an injury and could be in contention for the upcoming tie versus Burton.

Still, news are not so promising on Manchester United loanee Daniel Gore, who played only one game for Port Vale since coming in the January transfer window. Still, Moore is hopeful that Gore will recover before the end of the season.
