Accrington vs Sunderland Match Preview
Accrington have recently shot down the table, and they are not safe from relegation as things stand right now. They are just two points ahead of the bottom four, and there are three of those places still up for grabs. With just one win from their last six, they would love something from this game, and they will have a chance, as Sunderland will arrive here a tired team after a big game on Sunday in the EFL Trophy, a game which they lost on penalties.
Sunderland are in contention for an automatic promotion spot, but they have to catch up their games in hand on their opponents. They have nine games to play in just over a month, this is going to be a busy period and they start on the back of a long game on Sunday including extra time. Sunderland have the quality to get promoted, but do they have the legs within their squad?
We don’t think so, and while there is no doubt that Sunderland have far more quality than Accrington, we think this game will end a draw. Sunderland are going to tire at some point, and fail to win games because of that, who knows whether this will prevent them from being promoted, but we think it could. We are backing a draw here, priced up at 5/2 with William Hill.
We think that with Sunderland either fielding a team with a couple of squad players in, or being a little tired from Sunday, there won’t be many goals here. On top of that, with points at a premium for Accrington, we can also see them being cautious, especially in the first half. We like under 2.5 goals here, which is available at 17/20 with Bet365.
