Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Bolton, Wigan will look to return to winning ways when they host Accrington to their DW Stadium on Tuesday. The Latics are determined to secure automatic promotion, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Accy Stanley. Both Thelo Aasgaard and Scott Smith should miss out with injuries, while Jordan Cousins faces race against clock to be fit for the midweek clash.
The visitors, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table. Since Accrington have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Wigan Athletic. Harry Pell remains on the sidelined through injury, while Ross Sykes is banned for the match, speaking of the away side. In the first half of the season Wigan crushed Accrington 4-1.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
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.
