Aldershot’s unbeaten run was stretched to 6 games after their 1-1 draw with Bradford last Saturday having drawn 4 and won 2, but they are still sat precariously 3 points above the drop zone, having played a game more than all 4 teams that sit below them.
They have lost 7 out of 9 home games against teams operating in the top half of the table. Only Accrington have scored less goals on their own turf; the EBB stadium hasnt been a happy hunting ground this season despite being blessed by the Dalai Lama. Having said that, Andy Scott remains unbeaten as Aldershot boss thus far and also looks to be addressing their problematic home performance. They have won 3 of their last 6 there.
Burton Albion bounced back in style last match and top the form guide. 5 wins in their last 6 games banging in 16 goals in the process they sit third and have the chance to overtake 2nd placed Port Vale. Their home form has been scintillating of late; 9 wins in 9 but the last team to beat them at the Pirelli was none other than Tuesday nights opponents Aldershot Town. In fact Burton’s away form is amongst the worst in the division so this game is far from a banker.
