Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Struggling Cheltenham Town will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Accrington Stanley in the League One round 31. The Robins have been slipping down the standings week by week, and, as a result, their League One status is in danger. Head coach Wade Elliott feels pressure ahead of Saturday’s clash, and, no doubt, he could lose his job in case of yet another defeat. January signing Glen Rea is likely to make his Cheltenham debut against Accrington, as well as Elkan Baggott, who joined from Ipswich Town on loan.
Meanwhile, the Accy Stanley aim to escape the relegation zone, and seeing that they will go for a triumph as well, we are going to put our money on both teams to score. As for the visiting team, defender Harvey Rodgers misses out through suspension following his sending off in a 1-1 draw with Port Vale.
