Accrington vs Bristol Rovers
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Crown Ground (Accrington).
Bristol Rovers have climbed just above the relegation line with their spectacular showings in the last month.
The team is unbeaten in their last five matches, and as a cherry on top, they also won their EFL Trophy fixture against Northampton. The fans will be high on hopes and will definitely want to stay another season in the league.
Accrington was shown the door in their EFL match last day by Bury. Stanley could not take advantage of their home ground and conceded four goals in return for just two. Though as a consolation, the crew had won their FA Cup game last week.
Accrington vs Bristol Rovers Head-to-head (h2h)
- Stanley has won the last seven h2h matches in a row.
- John Coleman’s boys have scored in every match against this opponent, bar one.
- Accy Stanley is unbeaten against the Pirates at this venue. Except for a lone draw, the team actually has a 100% winning record.
- All h2h wins at this venue has come with a one-goal margin.
Accrington vs Bristol Rovers Prediction
John Coleman’s men have a 100% unbeaten record at home against this opponent and disregarding a 2007 1-1 draw, they have a 100% winning record. Also, the last seven h2h matches in a row saw Accrington wins. Except for one lone match back in 2006, Stanley has found the back of Bristol’s net in every single other game.
It is hard to argue against these kinds of stats. I predict a win for the hosts.
The form that the Gas has been in the last few match-days, and especially the away form has helped me to arrive at the inference that we can expect a goal from the visitors too. The Rovers have scored in their last six away matches in a row, and in eight of their last nine.
A 2-1 scoreline in favor of Accrington seems to be the most probable one, and there is no way that Sean McConville will not join the party when his team secures a home win and scores two goals.
