BURTON Albion remain three points clear of the relegation zone, despite defeat against Fulham, and face a resurgent Wolves on Saturday.

The Brewers were beaten by two second-half goals but more than matched Slavisa Jokanovic’s high-flying Whites and were again left frustrated at the Pirelli.

This weekend’s opponents, Wolves, are in formidable form at the moment, winning four of their last five – including a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup.

Paul Lambert replaced Walter Zenga midway through the campaign and has steadied the ship at Molineux with the gap above the relegation zone continuing to grow.

Wolves also signalled their intent by snapping up Helder Costa on a permanent deal with the winger attracting interest from Premier League sides.

The Portuguese joined the club from Benfica and has shone during his first few months in English football.

But the good form of Costa, Dave Edwards and Nouha Dicko is a key reason for Wolves’ upturn in form and Nigel Clough will have a game-plan to combat the attacking trio.

The Brewers boss will be delighted to welcome back loanees Cauley Woodrow and Lasse Vigen Christensen, who were forced to miss the Fulham clash.

Christensen put in a man-of-the-match performance against QPR and will aim to carry on where he left off on Saturday.

A win is crucial for the Brewers, with teams below them Bristol City, Wigan and Blackburn all having games in hand, so the table could look a lot different heading into the weekend.

Club sponsors TempoBet is backing the lads at 9/4 to earn a crucial three points.

Woodrow and Sordell could well lead the line together at the Pirelli with attack the best form defence against a leaky Wolves backline.

The Fulham loanee will be aiming to get off the mark on Saturday and show why he’s earned England Under-21 recognition during his time at Craven Cottage.

You can back him to score anytime at 7/4 with club sponsor TempoBet.
