Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Swindon Town and Accrington Stanley take on each other at County Ground in what is expected to be a close midweek fixture. The Robins suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous four league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are low on spirits ahead of the visit of Accrington. Swindon were not in action at the weekend, meaning that boss Richie Wellens is likely to field the best possible side against the Accy.
John Coleman’s charges did well to beat Fleetwood thanks to Dion Charles’ goal, and they should take advantage of Swindon’s poor form as well. In their last meeting in a competitive match Swindon Town defeated Accrington Stanley 3-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. Colby Bishop should keep his place up front, alongside aforementioned striker Dion Charles. Anyhow, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team.
