Port Vale to Score First

Our first Port Vale vs Burton prediction is for the hosts to draw first blood and score the opening goal of the match. The Brewers tend to start away games slowly and they have conceded the first goal in all of their last 6 away league matches. At the same time, Vale managed to score first in back-to-back rounds.

Over 1.5 Port Vale Goals

Our next free betting tip builds on the first prediction. We consider the possibility of Port Vale scoring more than 1 goal. The Villains face a Burton defence that failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 14 away league games. Port Vale also scored in all of the last 4 H2Hs and in 5 of their last 6 home matches, so their confidence is high right now.

Burton or Draw

With our final Port Vale vs Burton prediction we go a bit against the first two, but not entirely. As much as we think Port Vale will score in this match we don’t think the Brewers will lose. Burton have pulled themselves out of the relegation zone thanks to some very good form on a show over the last 12 rounds (W8 D2 L2). Also, Burton won 2 of the last H2H clashes and now they face a Port Vale side that have achieved only 1 win in the last 4 rounds (D1 L2).

Port Vale vs Burton Lineups & News

Port Vale

The Valiants drew 1-1 on their visit to Fleetwood last weekend and they yet again failed to impress much. Port Vale have achieved only 2 wins in the last 12 rounds and this pretty much ended their chances of achieving a top-10 finish.

Very likely to refresh the lineup and Benning could start again after being dropped to the bench for the last game. Both centre-back Jones and striker Massey are sidelined, both bitterly missed. An even bigger problem is the potential absence of the key playmaker Garrity. He is not ruled out, but if he’s to miss no suitable replacement is available.

Burton

Burton were very poor defensively on Tuesday night when losing 2-5 at home vs Peterborough. The Brewers were good value for the 2 goals they scored but at the back things were shambolic. Despite their very good recent run of 8 wins in 12 Burton remain too close to the relegation zone and can’t be relaxing just yet.

Key anchor-man Oshilaja remains suspended and his absence was felt on Tuesday as nobody protected the back 3 the way he does it. In search of better stability now centre-back Shaughnessy could be trusted with the role. Terry Taylor and McCann also missing injured, so the options in midfield are somewhat restricted.
