Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Home Park will host Saturday’s football game between Plymouth Argyle and Accrington Town, the two teams who defeated Hull City and Swindon Town respectively on Tuesday evening. The Pilgrims aim to extend their winning run to three games, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Accrington. Ryan Hardie scored his third goal of the season in the 2-0 win over the Robins, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
John Coleman’s troops, on the other hand, aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, but beating the in-form Pilgrims on the road is easier said than done. A close match is on the horizon, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Accrington boss John Coleman is likely to stick to the 3-5-2 formation, with Bishop and Charles up front.
