Betting Tip: Burton Albion @ 29/21 with bet365

A top six clash for the Sky Sports cameras on Sunday, with Burton looking to continue their strong start to the season which suggests that the Staffordshire team should have few problems staying in League One this term.

Indeed, we might instead see Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink guide Albion into the top six and a potential successive promotion, with the Dutchman barely putting a foot wrong since taking the reins from Gary Rowett last season.

Hasselbaink’s decision to take charge of Burton raised a few eyebrows although the former Chelsea striker clearly wants to forge a managerial reputation from scratch, with his team looking a good bet at 6/4 to claim three points.

Albion have beaten Peterborough and Scunthorpe already at the Pirelli, with the team holding their own at Doncaster on Tuesday before going out of the JP Trophy on penalties.

However, the fact that they also held Middlesbrough to a draw in the Capital One Cup before losing on spot-kicks illustrates this is a Brewers team who are hard to beat and they seem to be pretty good defensively this term.

Abdenasser El Khayati has been particularly sparky this term, with Coventry two points worse off after five games played although the Sky Blues boast the division’s top scorer.

Adam Armstrong plundered five goals in his first three matches, although the on-loan Newcastle forward has drawn a blank in his last two matches, with Tony Mowbray’s side held to a 2-2 draw by Southend last time out.

They were previously beaten 2-1 by Walsall and could be vulnerable in this game against a team who had the winning habit this term and are still carrying plenty of momentum during the early stages of the season.
