Accrington vs Blackpool
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Crown Ground (Accrington).

Blackpool is trying to recover from their back-to-back losses against the Dons and Coventry, two tough teams from the competition, with them registering a win to nil on the road against Doncaster the last day. As of now Pool is in possession of a playoff spot and will be keen to hold on to it. But considering easier fixtures for almost all of the squads above them on the table, the weekend tie becomes more important.

Their job seems a bit doable though, taking into account the form of the hosts for the day. As of now, Accrington is hanging above the relegation zone by a thread, and so far have registered a single win. They are also winless in the last three league fixtures.

Accrington vs Blackpool Prediction

Stanley was winless in eight of their former ten overall games. Not just that, but the team also lost three of their prior five home ties. From their eight league encounters till point, the team has been able to pull off just a single win.

Moreover, they lost the last two h2h ties and conceded four of the previous five h2h wins as well.

On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten in nine of their last eleven fixtures and are in possession of a playoff spot. In addition, they have lost just once in their former six road trips.

Taking these obvious stats into consideration, the expectation is for the visitors to dole out a win.

But due to the home advantage and Blackpool’s recent two losses, the chances for a win to nil is low. Add to this the fact that only once have an h2h encounter ended without goals from either side, and 100% of battles at this venue had both teams on the scorecard.

Consequentially, BTTS seems like a great option to be backed.
