Plymouth to Win

With seven wins from their last eight matches, Plymouth are really motoring and Argyle’s superb run has pushed them right into the middle of the League One title winning conversation. Steven Schumacher’s side are just three points from the division’s summit and they should be able to bag the win they need to breach the gap against a Burton side that should be reeling following a dismal run of five defeats in six games.

Under 2.5 Goals

Plymouth’s fine surge since the end of February has been powered by some excellent defensive displays and because of their rock-solid performances at the back, many of Argyle’s games have been low scoring. Indeed, a huge 11 of their last 12 matches in League One have produced under 2.5 goals and a stake in the same market is advised when Schumacher takes his well-drilled promotion chasers to the Pirelli Stadium.

Clean Sheet: Plymouth

The quality of Argyle’s defending has cranked up several notches since Steven Schumacher was handed the reins back in December and on Saturday, Plymouth will be seeking their eighth clean sheet in nine League One fixtures. Their chances of posting another shutout against a Burton side that failed to score in each of their last two runouts feels high, so back Plymouth to add yet another clean sheet to their tally for the campaign.

Burton vs Plymouth Match Preview and Team News

Burton

Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink has relatively few injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s game with back-up striker Tom Hewlett Burton’s only absentee. However, Conor Shaughnessy, who was sent off against Morecambe last weekend, will miss the clash with Plymouth through suspension. Burton were beaten 3-0 by the Shrimps and they have managed to win just one of their last eight game in the third tier overall.

Plymouth

Top scorer Ryan Hardie, Brendan Galloway and George Cooper are all doubtful for Plymouth, though James Bolton and Conor Grant should be fit enough to feature. Argyle earned an important 1-0 over fellow promotion contenders Oxford last time out and though they have played more games than the teams around them, a late title tilt is suddenly possible.
