Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool Match Preview
Goals usually flow when these clubs meet, but this game could be an exception judging by their respective League One scoring records this term.
As the first two of the stats above indicate, 25 goals have been scored in the seven previous matches between these Lancashire rivals who have faced each other more frequently in cup competitions than the league.
But Blackpool’s tally of 13 goals in 17 away games is the poorest in the division alongside bottom club AFC Wimbledon, while only two teams in League One have scored fewer at home than 14th-placed Accrington.
Also, neither of these sides is in great form. Blackpool have failed to score in their last three outings, with only two points collected from a possible 12 meaning they have lost ground in the race for the play-offs and they are now seven points outside the top six.
Accrington, meanwhile, have won only once in the league since Boxing Day and along with just over half of the clubs in this division, they cannot count themselves safe from relegation in what is a remarkably wide-open battle to avoid the drop.
It is difficult to fancy either of these teams for a win here and so a low-scoring draw is our idea of the most likely outcome.
