Tonight’s League Two action comes from Vale Park where second-place Port Vale will look to keep up the pressure on leaders Gillingham against a Burton Albion side who know victory will put them up to third, just a point behind Vale.
The hosts have recovered from a really bad patch of form that saw them lose five of seven games and have won two of their last three. Tom Pope scored a late equaliser against Chesterfield last time– his 31st of the season – and he looks set to be the main danger for Vale.
Albion have won six and lost only two of their last ten league games but have lost nine away games this term – only Northampton in the top half of the table have lost more on the road.
This won’t be a game where either team wants to give too much away, though, and could well be a draw like the corresponding fixture back in October was. Port Vale have won all previous meetings on home soil but their tendency to throw in a shocker this season is off-putting.
The draw is around 3.5 on BETDAQ and must be worth a bet.
