Accrington Stanley vs Cheltenham Prediction & Match Preview

Accrington Stanley vs Cheltenham
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 1 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Wham Stadium (Accrington).

Accy will be hoping to bounce back from recent failures on Saturday afternoon when they host lower-division Cheltenham Town in the second round of FA Cup at Wham Stadium. The hosts lost three on the trot in all competitions. They dropped down to 10th position in the League One ladder as a consequence and desperately need a victory to get their campaign up and running before entirely getting out of the promotional contest.

John Coleman’s men are heavy favourites against a team which sits in the red zone in the fourth tier of English football at the moment. However, we have to say the visitors will come into this in much higher spirits following an impressive thread of four straight wins in all competitions. They are unbeaten in past seven matches and they only shipped one goal in last five outings in the process.

Accrington Stanley vs Cheltenham: Head-to-head

The hosts have a chance to make it all square at 6 wins each with a victory here.

These two likes battled it out together in the League Two football last term before Stanley secured promotion.

Three of last five H2H matches ended with the same 1-1 scoreline.

Just one of past five H2H games saw three or more goals scored.

Accrington Stanley vs Cheltenham: Prediction

Accrington might struggle to create in the final third given they failed to find the back of the net in last two losses to Barnsley and Rochdale in League One. They do feature a higher division football, but their rivals look to have found the right formula to keep things quiet at the back.

We’ll remind that Michael Duffy’s men allowed only one goal in past five matches in all competitions. Expecting the visitors to park the bus against a stronger opposition, we believe the Under 2.5 goals FT has value at the 2.00 odds. Yu can also back the hosts to score fewer than two goals in the game at 2.25.
