Our Prediction:

Fleetwood Town will win

Fleetwood Town – Accrington Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

Nevertheless, their unbeaten run in the league, which now stands at six, remains intact, so the hosts ought to be feeling confident ahead of this match against Accrington. Had they not missed a second-half penalty, Fleetwood may have been happy to walk away from Stadium of Light with a share of the spoils last weekend. Though, given that they did have a golden opportunity, Joey Bartons men will likely have exited that game feeling that they ought to have won.

Accrington, on the other hand, sit in the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Lancashire, with the team collecting only one point from possible nine. Fleetwood have suffered only one loss in the League One so far this season and given their fine home record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts, who scored a late equalizer in a midweek fixture against Wycombe. Seeing that the visitors experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-2 home loss to Shrewsbury, home win should be considered.

The Cod Army havent had a match for two weeks due to the international break. This has seen on loan defender Harry Souttar represent Australia U23s in their bid to reach the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

FLEETWOOD TOWN

The visitors are now unbeaten since losing to Gillingham on the opening day. However, while Colemans men are doing well offensively, theyre looking suspect at the back. As is often the case with attack-minded teams, Stanley are finding it tough to keep teams out. Saturdays visitors are without a clean sheet this season, though such defensive woes havent stopped them from picking up pleasing results.

As far as finding a viable betting selection goes, goals is the obvious approach. Both sides have looked somewhat shaky at the back in recent matches, while neither are likely to adopt a defensive stance. Whats more, if either can repeat last weeks attacking efforts, whereby the pair drummed up a combined expected goals figure of 3.3, a shortage of goal-mouth action is unlikely to present itself at Highbury Stadium.

As things stand, Stanley sit a rather lofty third in the expected goals for table, while theyve netted a respectable nine goals in seven games. John Colemans men have stuck to their attacking tactics and have looked good in the final third as a result. As far as Accrington are concerned, well, the League One new-boys can be pleased with their efforts since earning promotion to the third tier of English football.
