Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following four consecutive draws, Portsmouth will look to get back on course in the League One when they take on Accrington on Saturday afternoon. The Pompey missed out on a spot in the playoffs, but they will surely give 100% to finish the season in great manner. Both Zach Swanson and Ronan Curtis remain on the sidelines through injuries, while Joe Morrell is back from suspension.
The Accy Stanley, meanwhile, are eager to keep their survival hopes alive. John Coleman’s troops, though, are on a three-game losing run, and given their difficulties on the road, we believe that home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Hampshire. In their last meeting at the venue Portsmouth crushed Accrington 4-0, and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
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.
