Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Loftus Road will host Saturday’s football game between AFC Wimbledon and Accrington, who face each other on day 4 of the new League One campaign. Following back-to-back draws with Northampton and Plymouth, the Dons recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Fleetwood at the weekend. The triumph gave AFC Wimbledon a confidence boost, and we are positive that they will go for a win in the Loftus Road clash as well.
Pacey winger Seddon scored the winner against Fleetwood, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Accrington, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Oxford United, and, to make things even worse for the team Dion Charles was sent off after 74 minutes. Seeing that the 24-year-old forward misses the AFC Wimbledon game through suspension, home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Kwesi Appiah ):
Born in Thamesmead, England on August 12, 1990, Kwesi Appiah is a professional footballer who plays for AFC Wimbledon in the League One. Due to his dual citizenship, Appiah is eligible to play for Ghana and he made his debut with the Black Stars in a 2-1 win over South Africa on January 27, 2015.
The pacey forward scored his first goal for the national team in a 3-0 win over Guinea on February 1, 2015. Appiah started his club career at Ebbsfleet United, but the list of clubs he played for is pretty long.
Appiah wore Peterborough United, Weymouth, King’s Lynn, Kettering Town, Brackley Town, Thurrock, Margate, Crystal Palace, Aldershot Town, Yeovil Town, Cambridge United, Notts County, Reading and Viking shirts before signing a permanent deal with AFC Wimbledon in 2017. His main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both second striker and left winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Accrington):
Founded back in 1891 and reformed in 1968, Accrington Stanley are an English football club that compete in the League One. The original team competed in the Football League from 1921 to 1962, spending the last four seasons in Lancashire Combination.
The Accy are well known for their red home kit, whilst they wear sky blue shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels. The League One side play their home games at Crown Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 5,450 spectators (3,100 seated). Accrington have been playing at Crown Ground since 1970.
Listed as the all-time favourite player amongst fans, Chris Grimshaw is one of the most famous Accrington Stanley footballers. However, George Stewart is the team’s top scorer, netting 136 goals in total from 1954 to 1958. It has to be noted that the Accy have yet to represent England in European competitions.
