Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Pirelli Stadium pits together Burton Albion and Accrington Stanley, the two sides who sit in the opposite halves of the League One standings ahead of Matchday 29. Burton Albion quickly bounced back from the FA Cup defeat to Northampton, with the team beating the likes of Fleetwood Town and Milton Keynes Dons in the previous two league matches.
The Brewers will be fully focused on the league in the remainder of the season, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Accrington Stanley. John Coleman’s troops are on a three-match losing run in the English third tier, which is yet another reason why punters can find value in betting on Burton. Liam Boyce scored his eighth goal of the season in the 1-0 win over MK Dons, meaning that Accrington defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Ryan Edwards):
Despite being born in Singapore on November 17, 1993, Ryan Edwards is eligible to represent Australia in international matches. The 175-cm-tall midfielder has 18 caps with Australia U-23 and it has to be noted that he played for the Socceroos at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Speaking of his club career, Edwards is a product of AIS, the high performance sports training institution from Australia, but in 2011 he was spotted by Reading scouts.
Ryan Edwards played for the Royals at senior level, making seven appearances for the club in the league. The Australian international whore Perth Glory (loan), St. Mirren (loan), Partick Thistle and Heart of Midlothian shirts as well before signing a deal with Burton Albion in 2019.
He made his debut with the Brewers in the League One on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 loss to Ipswich Town. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of producing fine performances at both central and right midfield 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.
