Accrington vs Sunderland 
England – League One 
Date: Saturday, 15 January 2022 
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET 
Venue: Crown Ground. 

Sunderland are one of the title prospects in the League One this season. They are placed second in the table, and have been one of the best offensive sides in the competition through the campaign. 

Meanwhile, Accrington have been fairly inconsistent in 2021-22, and they have rarely delivered good defensive performances at home. Moreover, they have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years too. 

By the looks of things, expect a win for Sunderland this weekend at the Crown Ground.
