Despite having high hopes before the season started, it has been a disappointing season so far for Burton Albion. Sitting in 17 in the League One 20/21 their fans are disillusioned and feel let down. A lot of this is due to their inability to score goals. As everyone knows, if you can’t score then you can’t win. Even having too many draws can lead to a disappointing season as each game you are losing two points.
They aren’t having much luck defensively either. Currently Burton Albion have let in 63 goals. This is far too many for a team with their aspirations, and when you consider that they have conceded this many in just 40 games it shows why they have struggled this season. They have conceded 1.58 goals per game. Unless they manage to stop the flow of goals going the wrong way, they are unlikely to be able to turn their season around.
With just 14 games won this season out of their 40 games played, their poor showing up front and at the back has caused them to be on a dismal run of form. Their win percentage for the season is just 46.25% and this is definitely not acceptable to Burton Albion’s fanbase.
However, they have managed to win 3 games in their last five games. This does show that they have the ability to turn their season around. If they can keep up this run of form then they could well achieve what they set out to achieve at the start of the season.
