Competition: League One

Market: Accrington Stanley win

Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a real purple patch on home soil, Accrington Stanley will host Shrewsbury on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, managing to find a welcomed boost earlier in the week as they claimed a penalties victory against Barrow on EFL Trophy duties, there is no doubt that Accrington Stanley will be desperate to keep up that momentum. Hoping to fully bounce back from that 2-0 defeat at the hands of MK Dons last weekend, Head Coach John Coleman’s side have still managed to impress since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Despite seeing their three-match winning run come to an end seven days ago, the Lancashire-based outfit have continued to catch the eye with their displays on home soil. Last seen at the Wham Stadium landing back-to-back wins against Doncaster and Cambridge, Accrington have lost just one of their last eight League One home fixtures continuing on from last season.

As for the visitors, while Shrewsbury might have managed to extend on their League One status last season, it appears that Steve Cotterill’s side are set for another relegation scrap this time around. Last seen getting hit with a deserved 1-0 defeat against Crewe Alexandra while on EFL Trophy duties in midweek, it looks like their much-needed victory last weekend could have just been a minor boost for the Shrews. Losing each of their opening four third-tier matchups and failing to record a single goal in doing so, the Shropshire-based side could face another stern test this weekend. Managing to land just a single away win from any of their last seven League One contests continuing on from last season, we’re backing a home victory for Accrington here.
