Burton Albion Vs Wolves Preview

In the same way that consecutive wins build confidence, back-to-back defeats are problematic.

After losing to Cardiff, we beat Southampton in the cup and got a solid point at Brentford. It felt like we were immediately back in business.

We need to do something similar again ahead of the international break with a derby to come against Villa straight after. We don’t want a bad result to become a bad run.

Burton are no slouches, particularly on their own ground, but this remains a good opportunity to bounce back.

Burton

They’re a funny old team who’ve registered all sorts of results so far, beating Fulham at home one week and getting slapped by Villa 4-0 the next. Leeds also took them to the cleaners at Elland Road.

Towards the end of last season they looked a dangerous side. Michael Kightly and Cauley Woodrow came in and they were making life difficult for everyone, including Wolves.

They beat us 2-1 to curtail Paul Lambert’s brief march up the table and were good value for that win, turning things around after Helder Costa’s penalty gave Wolves the lead.

But Kightly and Woodrow are no more. Their talisman Jackson Irvine was also sold to Hull in August so it’s been another summer reshuffle for Nigel Clough.

One player they have recruited is Sean Scannell and he has been a thorn in our side on several occasions for Huddersfield and could be again tomorrow.

Wolves man Joe Mason hasn’t been able to consistently force his way into their first eleven yet and they won’t be able to call on his services in this one against his parent club.

Wolves

The key question is who slots in while Conor Coady serves his suspension? Deslandes, Bennett and Hause are the most likely candidates but there are more left field solutions.

It would be a bold move to play Romain Saiss in the back three but he’s come on and played there a few times, so I believe this will be one of the ideas Nuno considers.

Surely Helder Costa will be given another chance to play? Like everyone else, I’m excited to see if he can link up with Jota and Bonatini to create one of the most formidable front three combinations we’ve ever had.

Bonatini also came off at half time against Sheffield United, so hopefully he’s fresh for this one, but with Costa back I can see both Enobakhare and Cavaleiro played down the middle if the Brazilian needs a rest.

Predictions

I’m backing us to get the win. I think it will be a tough game, but this group of players have the quality and a winning mentality.

The key is playing our way into the game and controlling possession. That won’t be easy on a tight pitch with the crowd on top of them, but they’ll get it done.

2-1.

Up The Wolves!

    I had a dream last night that we beat Albion 3-0. Now in truth I don’t think it was Burton Albion and Steve Bull scored at least one of the goals but hey-ho it’s good enough for me and that’s my prediction.

    Smile people, be happy, be positive, we are great and – we are going up!

    I quite like the idea of Saiss at the heart of the defence whilst Coady is out. If N’Daye settles well in the middle with Neves I think he could be there for good. And of course like everyone else, dying to see how the Costa/Bona/Jota forward line will perform. Let’s hope they won’t get kicked to oblivion. If all pans out well I can only see a win.

    Sheff United had the billing of a hollywood blockbuster what with “Costa and Jota starring for the first time together” but it ended up being a bigger let down than the new ghostbusters movie … lets hope the two get more time to show us what we all secret believe – that they are the best attacking duo in the division !

    Coadys moment of madness is a real kick in the teeth however, he has been the one big performer at the back with Miranda Batth and even Boly making too many mistakes … but it is what it is and whoeever comes in will have their work cut out for them

    Hold a high line (as Forest, Rovers and United all did) and we tend to struggle so lets hope he is able to counter this or we wont get anything from the game

    1-1

    I also had a dream; and 3-0 it was to us. So the we go, back into winning ways. If it was only that easy. We have exciting quality, we have the honour to put on a Wolves short, we have the fan base that demands nothing less than total grit and determination from each and every player. We WILL succeed.

    There has been an element of complacency in some of our recent performances. Hopefully after Wednesday night this will be a reminder that there are no easy games in this league and we aren’t going to just turn up and beat teams 3-0. Talent alone is nothing without application.

    Like Thomas I’m going for a 2-1 win as we should have the quality to see this through.

    Unlike Thomas I hope to high heaven that Saiss is nowhere near the defence. The very thought makes me feel decidedly nervous. If fit it’s time to recall Hause to the team.

    After getting thumped 4-0 in midweek Burton will surely be smarting and itching to put matters right tomorrow.

    Therefore I forecast a close contest with Wolves edging it 2-1.

    Mind you I had Wolves to win 3-0 at Bramall Lane so what the hell do I know.

    I gotta be right sometime, law of averages and all that.
    This is our season turning point.
    A….. gone for a burton.
    A 5-1 thrashing, revenge for last year, and an unbeaten journey for the rest of the season.
    Our Helda will be itching to strut his stuff, and he already has a season in division two under his belt, so knows how to play against Cloggers United.
    Our squad is far more talented than the rest of this division, ( see Ipswich, for fuck’s sake) and we are biding our time until we rise to the Prem ised Land.
    To paraphrase, or blantantly steal, something I read recently, There are players with lots of second division experience in this division, but they have this experience because this is their level.
    We are better than that.
    So, easy peasy win tomorrow, and if I aint appliance shopping I will be with you in spirit.

    If my memory is working correctly Saiss plays in the middle of the defence for his country Why not for us while Coady is out.

    I wasn’t particularly surprised to get beaten at Sheffield but I would be gobsmacked if we lost this one. Not disrespecting Burton but we should beat them without breaking sweat if we have designs on promotion.

  14. I’m all for sticking Saiss in the back three and bringing N’Diaye in, but part of me is tempted to bring in Price for Neves as well after what I’ve been reading, and possibly if we’re expecting another fairly physical game. That said, if we’ve got a front three of Costa, Jota and Bonatini, having someone like Neves behind them to feed them with top quality through balls sounds a pretty tasty prospect.

    I think that Saiss for Coady is a reasonable option but I have bigger concerns about Miranda who seems to be unable to cope with the physicality of the EFL.
    I thought that he was very poor at Sheffield so maybe it’s time to give Bennett a run out??
    Anyway, I still think that we will be too strong for Burton and we will go into the break with a comfortable win.

    I predicted we would be top by october , looking at the fixtures during the last international break I optimistically calculated ten points from the first 5 games, well guess what ! We have them , and as long as we get something from Burton ( and we will ) then this is still a great start to the season, Costa is back and our bench is starting to look seriously sexy , so ok we can wait until November to hit the top , it’s Not good to peak too soon anyway, we have lost two games and that’s against the top two teams on current form ,

    Well expect the lads to be harried, hassled, pressurised and they will be in our faces. We lack height and physicality, apart from Ndye, so can we cope? Hope so, and surely class will tell, but by itself its not enough, grit, determination and graft please Wolves, and bloody well make up for that miserable wet night on Wednesday in Sheffield.
    I see Forest have lost their last five home games, so its a banker for them to beat the Blades at home tomorrow. We are bound to let one in under an aerial bombardment, just hope football overcomes in the end and I can drive home happy with the 3 points, no sending offs for the away side tomorrow either.

    Wednesday was the Wolves I know, love and have grown to despair of … the one with its finger constantly hovering over the ‘self-destruct’ button. Fatigue seems to be an issue so I would expect some changes, with Jota and Doherty notably not firing on all cylinders recently. Maybe Marshall at RWB ? Also, N’Diaye gives us the option of someone running beyond Bonatini if the Albion (hah!) play a high line, though I hope in January we buy a player specifically suited to this role. Stream was much better on Wednesday, lets hope it continues tomorrow.

  22. I foresee a few changes in the starting line-up for this one. It’s only a couple of days since the Blades and if you’ve a bench as strong as ours, it has to be good to give some of them a run out when required.
    Tough start to the match, but our class will show through and Albion will eventually get tired of trying to get the ball.

    I got the Sheff U result half right. They scored 2 but we didn’t score 3 as I had predicted.
    Back to winning ways now, or else… Shame we blew it against Sheff. It’s always better to go a goal down than a man down. Coady should know. I remember Arsenal in the Champions League final. Their keeper was sent off for bringing a man down. He forgot that as well.

    Clough is another decent coach at this level and his teams won’t be easy to beat. We have to go for 2-0 to keep us safe in case they sneak a goal late on, and I think they will.

  25. A slip up at Sheffield United, that’s all that was, and playing with 10 for the majority of the game it was always going to be a task. So, onwards and upwards, and if we don’t return the compliment to the Blades later on in the season I’d be surprised. I can see a few changes for Burton though, and I for one would love to see Kortney force his way into the back line for a concerted run.

    I’m writing this while reclining on a hotel bed in the heart of London’s Theatreland.

    I’ve got a hot date with The Zombies at The Palladium this evening (I’ve dated quite few zombies in my time but that’s another story) and an equally hot one tomorrow at the V&A with The Pink Floyd.

    “Wish you were here”.

    I shall be keeping tabs on the Wolves match and hoping that they “Run like hell” and deliver the goods.

    I would be a bit worried with Saiss in the middle of the defence due to his preponderance for giving the ball away.

    I’d rather “See Emily play” there.

    Also, I worry about Miranda’s defensive abilities.

    My “Money” would be on Hause if he’s available.

    I am confident that, given the right team selection, we will beat Burton and restart our march towards promotion.

    In the words of a famous 60s rock band “It’s the time of the season”.

    So even though “I don’t believe in miracles”, “Say you don’t mind” if I predict a win.

    Like others on here I also had a dream. It started off nicely involving Natalie Sawyer off Sky Sports News and ended in a nightmare with chants of Albion Albion Albion. BUT IT WAS ONLY A DREAM – PREPARE FOR THE BACKLASH YOU ALBION BASTARDS! The wounded animal is dangerous and so it will prove as Nunos boys will savage the Brewers. A midfield swirling around like a bunch of Keith ‘Psycho’ Downings on acid has the Albion in tatters. Nuno is sick of the Chumpionship Cloggers and decides it is time to dish it out. WWFC have the Brewers 3-0 down at half time. They resume second half and to be honest the well oiled Wolves machine makes Albion look like an out of sorts selection of Daleks off Dr Who. Wheeling away aimlessly. Crashing in to each other, shouting ‘exterminate exterminate’ only to be crushed by another ‘psycho’ challenge. They eventually explode and one of those sucker type things that stick out the top of the Dalek flies through the air and knocks Nigel Clough out giving him concussion and a Black eye. The chaos doesn’t help Albion as WWFC slice through at will. Eventually winning 6-1. Leo Bonatini grabs four as he takes advantage of the confusion in Albions ranks. They thought he was Bonetti and in goal. Which shows how fucking thick and stupid Albion are. But a good day at work for Nuno and the boys. Back on track ready to give Villa a spanking in two wiks time. Oh and hearty congratulations to the mighty 3 Pears of Worcestershire for their promotion as champions in the cricket.

    I just keep thinking that someone is due a spanking soon. Not Sue as she got one last night for making me have a night off the beer. And I think that it will be tomorrow. Burton are not the team they were last year and we will be smarting after Wednesday. One of these days everything will just click and we will steamroller someone. Wish we were going as we had a great weekend when we played them in a pre season friendly a few seasons ago. We were in a pub in the town centre rammed with Wolves fans and the landlord said ” I wish we could play you every week, you drink so much”. Can I just say that he meant Wolves fans in general and not just me and Sue ! Have a great day you bloggers who were lucky enough to get a ticket and also, can I just wish Kevin Doyle a long and happy retirement from football. Loved watching him play for us and he won me a fair few quid when he scored that winner at Spurs.

    Lets be honest the Sheffield Utd result has been on the cards. We haven’t been playing as well as we have and should be playing.

Unlike some I want Neves to start…replace him during the game if he fails to perform but against this opposition I want to see Neves, Costa and Jota take control and blitz them. Shall be very disappointed at anything other than 3 points.

  57. Matt Cook says:

    Still gutted for Coady really hope this red card does not affect him the same way the red card not long into his Wolves career did. Onto to the Burton game and it is really intriguing to see what team Nuno picks. Bennett & Hause are available and he could also play Saiss in a back three but the way we play the one that plays in the middle of the three has to be good on the ball so I would move Miranda in the middle and plat Batth & Hause either side of him. That said though Miranda’s place in the team is under pressure in my opinion particular when Boly is fit. He has looked shaky recently and getting beat my Leon Clarke twice should be a little concerning, Also, think Neves could do with a rest. Think we forget he is only 20 and just become a father and moved his family to a new country. He will come again though. If the trio of Costa, Jota & Bonatini play more than 20 minutes surely we will cause Burton problems.

    Best wishes to Kevin Doyle. He did two things I’ll never forget and for which I’ll always love him.

    December 2009 scoring the goal at White Hart Lane that meant we beat my most hated of teams, Spurs, and gave me bragging rights over so many friends and colleagues who, after they’d put 9 past Wigan a few weeks earlier were predicting a cricket score against us. Fools!

    March 2012 I met him and asked him to record a message for my daughter’s upcoming wedding which I put on her Facebook page on the day. He agreed and recorded a really lovely, totally unrehearsed and heartfelt message that would bring a tear to anyone’s eye.

    Top man. Enjoy your retirement Doyler.

    Keeping abreast from India- if its Sat it must be Jaipur but will be back next week. Ok a midweek loss due to the sending off and letting a donkey like Leon to score – unbelievable. However, shit happens and a good team bounces back and I can see this happening against Burton, even though I have a lot of time for Cloughie junior.

    Hope your right Thomas. Villa are on the up and we need to be at our best and full of confidence when we play them. This is a tough game and I can see a hard earned point being chalked on the board. Bonatini to score a tap in from a ball being played across the 6 yard box

    The mid-week loss had been coming looking at the way we had played over the past few games.

    Hoping that it shocks us into action. Would love to see Jota and Costa score.

    Looking forward to Nuno’s response following Wednesday’s game. Costa will need some time to bed in, particularly in the absence of a preseason.

    It’s a return to winning ways for me.

    Set your sights low – never be disappointed. Burton to turn us over. First mini-crisis of a wolves season is overdue.

    We could give Ryan Bennet a go. He wasn’t too bad in the cup I’m told.

    Hope I’m wrong.

    Head on the block – I don’t see Burton without Mason scoring against us and I would expect Jota to have too much for a makeshift defence. But Villa looming is going g to be test. However,one game at a time and coaxing Nerves back into the right mind set when under pressure in your own half is the current issue. All the required positives will flow from that. Have to give Costa some playing in time.

    It’s probably the bad hangover I’m nursing at the moment but I think this game is gonna be just like my day today. Forgettable, yet refreshing. For me this means rolling around on the sofa watching some football on the telly and gathering up energy. For Wolves it means returning to the winning ways with hard fought 2-1.

    If we are serious contenders we should finish off Burton with ease. I think we will.

    Well everybody’s going 2-1 so I’m changing up a gear and pitching for 3 (buggered if I know who’s scoring em apart from Jota though)

    Gotta put Sheffield behind us however much it stings. We just have to toughen up when we play teams that are intent on kicking us off the park. This is the downside of having a team of young lads when they meet seasoned vets..and before anybody mentions Man Utd kids, they had premier refs to protect them…and Roy Keane!!

    I’m not promising a rose garden for the travelling hordes but we’ll win this one.

  77. I think Nuno should take some responsibility for the loss. He is responsible for getting the team motivated and he should be doing that during practices and in the dressing room.
    He has a highly talented team and not motivating them is his fault, not anyone elses.
    But he will find some way to blame the lack of attendance or something.
    Man up, Nuno and say into the camera “I am at fault. I have failed to motivate the team over the last few games”.

    Anyway, my guess is 0-2 Wolves.

    Darn it
    If we’d signed a “striker” we could have scored a hatfull.
    Oh, we did.
    Nuff said.
    Best football of the season, by far.
    Looked liked a training session, but not as difficult!!
    And lovely last min equalizer in sandwell, stopped the shit winning.
    Bring on the vile, shit eating grin firmly in place for the next two wicks!!

    Whopeeee and double whoopeer – nice one lads. Excellent 4 goals and second in the league. Chuffed to bits tonight and made up when Watford deservedly equaliser against Smethwick.

    Just what the doctor ordered after Bramall Lane. Nuno waves his magic wand and the team respond! The writes ups are eulogising about the performance. Wonderful.

    Come on Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow – please muller those utterly detestable and thoroughly nasty bunch of twats from West Yorkshire. Despite their protestations Weeds do not have the “best fans”. It’s all bollox. A city of 600,000 + that struggle to get 30,000 with only one professional club and a catchment of 1 million. Loyal fans? My arse.
    I fuvking hate Weeds from Revie onwards and also a right arrogant arsehole at the local swimming pool – always going on about “mighty Leeds”. Revie was not fit to lick the Grand Masters boots and we never resorted to bribery and evil tactics.

    We are second in the league guys – this time tomorrow I predict we will still be second.

    In a few weeks Weeds visit Molineux – I know it’s a bit early but every Wolves fan everywhere shout your knackers off to ensure the gold and black muller those bastards. Please?

    I will be soooo happy. Thanks

    Next up the Villa – we are stopping over for that one.
