Accrington Preview – Will Accrington take important home points?

Whoever wins this fixture could have the chance to move into the top six on Tuesday night, if the current sixth-placed Doncaster lose.

Accrington have the home advantage then for this important game.

They have claimed just one win in their last seven League One fixtures, however, so need a boost of form.

It has been a W7 D4 L3 home record from them this season.

But are winless in their last three now on home turf (D2 L1).

In the match outright for League One betting on this game, the win for Accrington is at 31/20* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

One positive for them is they are undefeated in three home games played this season against currently in the top eight with them (W2 D1).

In none of those three games did they concede a goal either.

The NO option for Both Teams To Score is at 4/5* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

That could be a good proposition as both teams have scored in just 36% of Accrington’s home league games this season.

Accrington have taken a clean sheet in exactly half of their home fixtures.

So they are not an easy side to break down.

Expanding on their good defensive output at home further, Accrington have conceded an average of just 0.7 goals per home game.

Our betting prediction:
Accrington to win to nil

Bet at Bet365

(odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021)


They will be looking to turn the tables on the Tractor Boys in this one after suffering a 2-0 loss at Portman Road earlier this season.

The half time draw at 11/10 looks like a good betting option as well for this fixture* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021)..

Accrington have been level at the break in 9 of 14 home games.

They have tallied 67% of their home goals in this campaign in the second half of fixtures and therefore this should be tight at the midway point.

This would be a fantastic home win for Accrington if they can get it on the board.


Ipswich Preview – Can the Tractor Boys do the double over Accrington?

Ipswich arrived in action on Tuesday night in better current form than their opponents.

How big of a factor is that going to be on the night?

Ipswich are W2 D3 in their last five league games and have suffered just the one defeat in their last seven.

It’s been a fairly average away campaign from them though, as the Tractor Boys are W5 D3 L4 on their League One travels.

In their last away game, they earned themselves a fantastic 1-0 success at third-placed Hull.

Then on the weekend, they followed up on home soil with a win over Doncaster who sat in sixth place.

So that’s two big tests that the Tractor Boys have passed in their last two games.

Can they keep this momentum going?

There is a lot in their away from actually as they have taken a W3 D3 L1 record in their last seven on the road.

But there is one big caveat to all of that positive talk.

That will be their lack of form away against stronger opposition this season.

Ipswich have played five of the seven teams currently above them in the table away from home this season.

From those five matches, Ipswich are D1 L4 so have struggled in the tougher road games.

Ipswich have lost their two previous visits to Accrington as well, failing to score in either of those fixtures.

They’ve been good in defence this season, home and away combined Ipswich have conceded under a goal per game on average.

Under 2.5 goals appears to be an excellent way to swing in this game at 8/13 odds-on* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

The Tractor Boys have hit the back of the net in each of their last five away games and have actually opened the scoring in 7 of 12 road fixtures.

While they are right up there this season in terms of defensive output, with only three teams currently better than them, Ipswich have lacked a bit of a scoring touch.

As it stands the Tractor Boys are the sixth-lowest scoring team in the division.
