Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Accrington will try to recover from back-to-back defeats to Colchester United and Crawley Town when they take on Wrexham on Matchday 18. The Accy Stanley are eyeing their sixth home win of the process, but they face a difficult task against the promotion-chasing visitors. Keep in mind that talented defender Brad Hills misses out through suspension. The Red Dragons, on the other hand, are on a three-match winning run in the League Two.
Wrexham have been scoring goals for fun of late and given Accrington’s poor form, away win should definitely be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Lancashire. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier Accrington defeated Wrexham 3-1, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Elliot Lee, who has already netted ten goals this season.
