Our prediction for this League 1 match:
The Wham Stadium will host Tuesday’s postponed fixture between Accrington and Plymouth, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Accy Stanley are fighting tooth and nail to secure the League One survival, but their current form is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Plymouth. Since Accrington collected only one point in total from the last four league fixtures, home win should not be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but midfielder Jack Nolan could sneak into the starting XI.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, recorded a routine 2-0 win over Forest Green at the weekend to stay in automatic promotion berth. The visitors have a chance to overtake Sheffield Wednesday in top position, and we predict that they will take advantage of Accrington’s poor form. Joseph Edwards is a major doubt after limping off with injury at the weekend, with Ryan Hardie pushing for a recall to the starting XI.
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.
