Peterborough vs Accrington Stanley: Prediction

Both the teams have god goal scoring record at this early stage of the season. With Godden and Cummings on one side and McConville on the other goals are easy to come.

The away side has a below par away record and considering the home performance of the Posh a slight advantage for Stanley can evolve. The home side are under pressure as they have not won a game in their own turf since August.

Steve’s men have to improve that stat to stay in the fight for title.
