Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Rochdale and Accrington Stanley, the two teams who sit in the danger zone in the League One standings, face each other at Crown Oil Arena on Matchday 13. Rochdale failed to impress in a 3-2 loss to AFC Wimbledon in their last league fixture, but the good news for the fans is that Ian Henderson came from the bench and scored a brace for the Dale. The 24-year-old is likely to return to the starting line-up and, no doubt, all eyes will be on him when Rochdale face Accrington Stanley this weekend.
The hosts are desperate to bounce back from the defeat to the Dons and we are positive that they are going to find the net in Saturday’s football match. The Accy, on the other hand, are undefeated in previous four league fixtures and seeing that they managed to find the net in each of their previous seven league games, both teams to score bet should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Callum Camps):
Callum Camps is yet another product of Rochdale football school. Born in Stockport, England on November 30, 1995, Camps came through Rochdale youth team before making his senior debut on April 13, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Port Vale.
He has been playing for the Dale ever since and it has to be noted that his most successful season was the 2016/2017 as he scored eight goals in 44 appearances in the League one for the club. Despite being born in England, Callum Caps is eligible to play for Northern Ireland national team through his grandmother, but he has only one cap with the Northern Ireland U21 team.
He made his debut with the U21 team in a 2-1 loss to Macedonia on October 13, 2015. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and attacking midfielder as well.
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.
