Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Bolton will be looking to put an end to their five-game losing run in the League One when they face Accrington Stanley at their University of Bolton Stadium. The Trotters will find it hard to secure the survival, and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Accrington Stanley. You should bear in mind that Bolton suffered a 2-0 loss to Wycombe Wanderers in their last home game, which is yet another reason why we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts.
The Accy, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form. Following three consecutive wins in the League One, Accrington suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Rotherham United and Oxford United. The visitors are stuck in the middle of the table ahead of the trip to Bolton, but they are surely capable of sharing the spoils with the out-of-sorts relegation strugglers.
Highlighted Player (Jason Lowe):
Jason Lowe is a Blackburn Rovers midfielder, who was born on 2 September, 1991 in Wigan, Greater Manchester. Lowe plays as a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a central midfielder and a right back as well. The Blackburn footballer made his senior debut on 28 March 2011 during his loan spell with Oldham Athletic.
He scored his first ever goal against Notts County six days later. Lowe returned to Blackburn Rovers at the end of the 2010/2011 season and he made his first appearance for the Rovers on 24 August 2011 in a victory over Sheffield Wednesday (League Cup). Speaking of his international career, Lowe made England U-19 training camp and he was selected for his national team for the European Under-19 Football Championship finals in July 2010 (Ukraine).
However, he eventually withdrew from the squad through injury. On 10 October, 2011 Lowe made his England U-21 debut in a 2-1 victory over Norway U-21. The two teams faced each other in the Euro 2013 qualifiers.
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.
