Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following a heavy 3-0 loss to Wycombe, Port Vale will look to put an end to their four-game winless run when they face Accrington in a postponed League One fixture. The Valiants, though, are stuck in the middle of the table, meaning that the relegation-threatened visitors want this win more. Tom Conlon is pushing for a start, while all Matty Taylor, Ellis Harrison, and James Wilson remain in the recovery room.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Barnsley (1-3) and Lincoln (0-3). Since both sides are eager to return to winning ways in the League One, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. The visitors will be without Harry Perritt in Tuesday’s clash following his sending off against Lincoln, while Ryan Astley misses out with injury.
Highlighted Player (Funso Ojo ):
Funso Ojo is a Belgium international who plays for Aberdeen as a midfielder. Ojo was born in Antwerp on August 28, 1991, starting his youth career at Olse Merksem. In 2004 he was spotted by PSV scouts, moving to Eindhoven very soon.
Funso Ojo made 11 appearances for PSV in the Dutch Eredivisie before moving to Beerschot AC, yet another club from his youth career. The Belgium international played for the likes of Royal Antwerp, Dordrecht, Willem II, and Scunthorpe United before signing a deal with Aberdeen in 2019. Funso Ojo made his Scotland Premiership debut in a 3-2 win over Hearts.
Speaking of his international career, Ojo has one cap with the Belgium U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the Belgium senior team. His primary position is central midfield, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a defensive midfielder. As his parents are of Nigeria descent, the Aberdeen footballer has a dual citizenship.
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.
