Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Accrington and Plymouth face each other at Crown Ground in a postponed League One game. After crushing Bristol Rovers 6-1, Accrington played out a goalless draw with Northampton in their last league match, with the team extending their unbeaten run on home soil to three games. Full-back Joe Pritchard misses the game through suspension, with Harvey Rodgers pushing for a start. The Pilgrims, on the other hand, head into the midweek game following a 2-2 draw with Portsmouth.
Plymouth have been producing fine displays on the road of late, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. When the two teams met in the League One earlier in 2021 they played out a 2-2 draw. Both George Cooper and Gary Sawyer are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Stephen Sama):
Born in Bamenda, Cameroon on March 5, 1993, Stephen Sama is a towering defender who plays for Accrington Stanley in the League One. After moving to Germany, Sama received German citizenship in 2009, and, as a result, he represented the European country at youth level.
The Cameroon-born player has 16 caps in total for Germany U17, U18, U19 and U20 teams. Speaking of his club career, Stephen Sama played for the likes of Schwarz-Weiss Eppendorf, Wattenscheid, Bochum, Borussia Dortmund, and Liverpool before moving to Stuttgart. Sama played for the likes of Greuther Furth, Osnabruck, and Heracles Almelo before signing a deal with League One club Accrington Stanley.
The 188-cm tall defender made his League One debut on September 12, 2020 in a 2-0 win over Peterborough United. His main position is centre-back, but he is used as both right-back and defensive midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
