Accrington Stanley vs Barnsley
English League One
Date: Saturday, 17 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET

Accrington Stanley only fought their way to earn the League One status in the previous season, but they don’t seem too intimidated by the third tier football at the start of the campaign. They sit at the sky-high 7th place after 17 rounds of the competition and will generally come into Saturday’s home tie with top-seven rivals Barnsley high on confidence as League One returns to action after last weekend’s FA Cup fixtures.

Speaking of the FA Cup, we must say both Accy and the Tykes made it to the second round past their respective rivals. The hosts saw off League Two hopefuls (currently at third place in the fourth division) Colchester United 1-0 at home thanks to Daniel Barlaser’s first half goal. Barnsley also played s League Two opposition on the occasion, but they had an easier task storming past the struggling Notts County side 4-0 on Saturday afternoon.

Accrington Stanley vs Barnsley: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between the two sides.

Accrington Stanley vs Barnsley: Prediction

There were two divisions separating these two likes in the previous season, meaning the quality should still be on Barnsley’s side. The visitors confirmed their ambitions (the instant return to the Championship football) with a fine kick off to the new season. They sit fourth in the League One ladder at the moment, but could drop out of the top six with a defeat here at Wham Stadium.

However, it’s hard to see one coming as Daniel Stendel’s troops were quite successful in keeping things tight at the back lately. They allowed only one goal in last four games in all competitions winning each of these along the way.

Knowing that Accy also improved their defensive efforts in recent weeks, we have reasons to expect a tight clash with very few goal-scoring chances at both ends. The Under 2.5 goals FT is thus just the way to go at the odds of 1.90.

Accrington Stanley vs Barnsley: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.90 (9/10)
  • Draw at the half time @ 2.10 (11/10).
