Day 12 of the League One season will come to an end with Burton Albion’s football match against Cambridge United on Monday. The Brewers have been putting on strong performances lately. They defeated Wigan 2-1 at home and shared the victory with Reading away from home. They can certainly compete with the Yellows at Pirelli Stadium.
Burton vs Cambridge
The 2023–24 campaign will mark Burton’s sixth consecutive season in the Championship. They were a mid-table squad in every season before then. Burton had ten points from its first 11 games this season. That is sufficient to keep you barely two points above the bottom half of the standings at the moment.
Burton hasn’t lost in their last five games, so it appears like they are improving with each contest. They defeated Wigan 2-1 at home in the previous game. Guest led at halftime, but the home team scored twice in the second period, and the Pirelli Stadium crowd erupted in jubilation once more.
Burton should have a lot of confidence in themselves going into the game against Wigan since every victory breeds more self-assurance.
Cambridge United experienced serious issues the entire previous season. They overtook MK Dons in the most recent round and narrowly avoided relegation. With 14 points so far this season, Cambridge United is off to a strong start. However, the majority of those points came early in the season, since the squad has gone five games across all competitions without a victory.
They fell to Barnsley 4-0 at home in the previous encounter. Despite playing quite evenly, the home team fell again because the visitors were considerably better at converting goal-scoring opportunities.
The previous time the two teams met in the championship, Barnsley defeated Cambridge United 4-0 at home. Although they had enough possession of the ball and produced a few scoring opportunities, Mark Bonner’s team lacked an offensive edge.
While Cambridge United’s recent results haven’t been great in general, their away record seems to be getting worse as the season goes on. They have lost three times and scored just once in their last four road games in all competitions, going winless during that span.
Burton has gone five games without a defeat, while Cambridge United went that long without a victory. Burton should have a better chance of winning the upcoming game against Cambridge United.
Cambridge have won two and lost two across their clashes with the sides currently below them in the table, so don’t expect them to outclass a Burton team who have turned their season around. The hosts look good value for the victory, while they can shut out the blunt visitors.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
