Our prediction for this League 1 match:
County Ground will host Tuesday’s postponed fixture between Swindon Town and Accrington Stanley. The Robins showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from two goals behind to share the spoils with Shrewsbury Town, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to escape the danger zone in the standings.
Accrington, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Fleetwood and Northampton, and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the midweek clash. Swindon are eyeing their fourth home win of the season, but given Accrington Stanley’s recent form, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in four of the previous six meetings between the two clubs in all competitions.
