Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Accrington Stanley will be looking to put an end to their four-match winless run in the League One when they welcome Peterborough United at Wham Stadium on Matchday 30. Accrington have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding nine goals in total in the previous four games in the league. The Accy aim to escape the danger zone in the League One standings, but given their poor form, home win should not be considered.
The Posh, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late. Following a thrilling 4-0 win over Wycombe Wanderers, Peterborough United outplayed Rotherham United in the League One derby at the weekend, with Ivan Toney scoring his 18th goal of the match. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors, who have found their best form in 2020.
Highlighted Player (Billy Kee):
Born in Loughborough, England on December 1, 1990, Billy Kee is a professional footballer who plays for Accrington Stanley as a striker. However, despite being born in England, the 175-cm-tall attacker represents Northern Ireland on the international stage. Billy Kee was called up to the senior Northern Ireland squad in September, 2009 for a World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia, but he has yet to make his debut for the national team.
The Accrington Stanley man scored 13 goals for the Accy in the 2018/2019 League One campaign, but that did not help the team secure promotion to the Championship as they finished the season in the 14th place in the standings.
Billy Kee started his youth career at Leicester City academy, while playing for the likes of Torquay United, Burton Albion, Scunthorpe United and Mansfield Town at senior level. His contract with Accrington Stanley should expire on June, 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
