Sunderland vs Accrington Stanley predictions and betting tips for this Friday night League One fixture on February 15th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
There’s a televised League One on Sky Sports this Friday as Sunderland take on Accrington Stanley at the Stadium of Light. It’s a quick turnaround for the Black Cats, who were in action just three days ago. This is the second of three consecutive home matches after failing to take all three points against Blackpool in midweek, they Mackem crowd will be expecting their side to come out on top against an out-of-form Accrington. John Coleman’s men haven’t scored a League One goal since Boxing Day and are currently plummeting towards the drop zone. It’s hard to see them stopping the rot in this fixture. See our Sunderland vs Accrington predictions Stanley below.
Sunderland’s promotion bid has hit the buffers in the last couple of weeks and Jack Ross’ side are struggling to keep pace with the likes of Barnsley and Luton. The Black Cats failed to take three points against Blackpool in midweek and although Ross searched for the positives in their performance, his side weren’t particularly convincing in the final third. Will Grigg missed a couple of big opportunities and he will be desperate to get off the mark here. It’s now ten consecutive games that they’ve scored exactly one goal and they’re going to need to be far more prolific if they are to return to the Championship at the first time of asking. They haven’t been defeated since December 22nd, but they’ve won just three times during that period, all by a 1-0 score-line.
Accrington will provide a stiff test for the Wearsiders but it could be the right time to face John Coleman’s men. Accy haven’t scored since Boxing Day outside of the FA Cup although they don’t concede many goals. They could be difficult to break down, but one goal may be enough for the hosts. They need to turn draws into wins and this could be the perfect opportunity. They are odds-on to collect three points but if you chuck in Under 4.5 Goals, 21/20 is available. It is the first of our Sunderland vs Accrington prediction for Friday night.
We aren’t expecting too many goals in this tie and Sunderland’s recent matches have not been overly entertaining. Some fans are grumbling about the style of play and Jack Ross is beginning to come under pressure for the first time this season. Josh Maja’s absence is being felt by the club and they’ve been largely relying on moments of brilliance to break the deadlock. None of their last nine games have featured more than two goals and this could go the same way. Accrington’s last four League One games have featured just three goals and each of their two FA Cup fixtures against Championship opposition ended 1-0. Expect a tight one here and Under 2.5 Goals is the second of our League One betting tips for this evening.
Will Grigg is yet to get off the mark for his new club and he is clearly lacking a bit of confidence in front of goal. He probably needs a deflected effort to loop in off his shin. The former Wigan man is the favourite in the anytime goalscorer market but it’s probably advised to look elsewhere. Aidan McGeady has rescued many points for Sunderland this season and he may be the man to back here. Since the end of October, he’s netted eight time and the majority of them have been crackers. He could decide this tie with a moment of brilliance. Aidan McGeady to Score Anytime is the third of our Sunderland vs Accrington Stanley betting tips.
Sunderland are the odds-on favourites for this tie and they are 8/11 to collect all three points here. Many people will be backing them for success and they should be able to put their disappointing midweek result behind them. Accrington are 4/1 to cause an upset and it’s 5/2 to end all-square. Sunderland have drawn five of their last six games.
It’s 19/20 for Over 2.5 Goals in this match with the bookies expecting a few goals. It’s 17/20 for Under 2.5 Goals whilst BTTS? Yes is available at 4/5.
Will Grigg is 4/1 to break the deadlock in this game and score his first goal for Sunderland since signing on deadline day. He’s followed by Charlie Wyke, who is available at 9/2. Chris Maguire has enjoyed a profitable League One campaign and is 5/1 to score the opener with Accrington’s Billy Kee 6/1 to get things started here.
