Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sixfields Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Northampton Town and Accrington Stanley, the two bottom-table sides. Northampton have been having their ups and downs of late, but the game against Accrington could be the turning point for the Cobblers. The hosts aim to make amends for a shocking FA Cup loss to Oxford City, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field in the Sixfields Stadium clash.
The Accy, on the other hand, did well to beat Fleetwood Town in their last league match, but Tranmere proved to be a big catch for them in the FA Cup. Since the visitors are eager to return to winning ways as well, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that 18 goals in total have been netted in the previous four meetings between the two clubs.
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.
