Accrington Stanley Preview – Stanley to claim a fourth league win?

Accrington Stanley have started their League One season with three wins and two defeats from their opening five fixtures. On the opening weekend of the new campaign, Stanley were beaten 2-1 at Wycombe Wanderers.

John Coleman’s troops responded from that loss at Adams Park in fine style, sealing three successive League One wins. In the space of just seven days, Accrington had seen off Cambridge United, Doncaster Rovers and Crewe Alexandra. However, they were beaten 2-0 by MK Dons at Stadium MK last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Accrington to keep a clean sheet

(odds taken 1114 GMT, Friday 3 September)

Accy’s solid start sees them sitting pretty in ninth spot at present. With several of the big boys not playing this weekend, Accrington could go joint top if results go their way. The bookies have the home win available at evens.

Shrewsbury Town Preview – Can the Shrews build on last weekend’s success?

Shrewsbury Town finished in 17th place in League One last term, and the Shrews could have another tough season in the third tier. At the time of writing, Town are languishing down in 22nd spot with just three points to their name.

Steve Cotterill’s men made a miserable start to their League One campaign. The Shrews opened up with consecutive losses to Burton Albion, Morecambe, Portsmouth and Plymouth Argyle. However, they finally picked up a victory last weekend, with Tom Bloxham and Sam Cosgrove scoring in a much-needed 2-1 home win over Gillingham.

Accrington Stanley vs Shrewsbury Town Betting Advice

Both matches in last season’s League One ended in draws. The pair drew 2-2 at New Meadow back in December. They then played out a 1-1 stalemate in Accrington a couple of months later.

Stanley have struggled in this fixture in recent years. A 2-0 victory on the road in February 2020 and a 2-1 home win on Boxing Day 2018 remain their only successes over Town since 2010.


Key Facts – Accrington Stanley vs Shrewsbury Town Betting Tip

  • Accrington have won three league games so far
  • Before last weekend’s win, Shrewsbury had lost their opening four in the league
  • Accy have won just two of the last nine meetings


Accrington will move level with Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday with three points on Saturday. Shrewsbury will be buoyed after last weekend’s victory, but we fancy the hosts in this one. Back Accy to be winning at half time and full time at 9/4.

Accrington’s last two league wins have both come with clean sheets. Coleman’s men will want a shutout here, and you can get the home side to win to nil at the decent price of 11/5.
