Blackpool

Fresh after their comeback victory at Kingsmeadow against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, Accrington Stanley return to EFL Trophy action in midweek. They host fellow League One side Blackpool in their second cup clash of the campaign, with both sides winning their opening Group G encounter.

Blackpool were taken to penalties but prevailed 5-3 against Barrow last month, while Accrington Stanley thrashed Leeds United under-21s with a 7-0 triumph.

Both are expected to rotate after their weekend fixtures, but who will go top after two games here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool Betting Tips

A quick-fire double courtesy of Ross Sykes and Matt Butcher saw Accrington Stanley emerge 2-1 winners in London over the weekend. After back-to-back defeats by Burton Albion (2-1) and Oxford United (4-1) in quick succession, it was important for John Coleman's side to return to winning ways.

Unlike England's top-two divisions, there is no international break from League One down – so matches continue thick-and-fast. They will host a much-changed Blackpool side eager to atone for successive defeats themselves, having lost in cruel fashion on Saturday.

They scored first and were 2-1 up with six minutes left when defender James Husband was sent off for a last-man foul – presenting Lincoln City with a late penalty. Jorge Grant converted from the spot before Dutch centre-back Lewis Montsma scored an 88th-minute winner to sink their hosts.

Neil Critchley will rotate accordingly for this clash, eager to go top by beating a side they're narrowly ahead in the H2H statistics. Accrington were 1-0 winners on Boxing Day last year in the most recent meeting but needed a stoppage-time goal to settle proceedings.

Accrington Stanley vs Blackpool Correct Score Predictions

In nine previous H2H matches, Blackpool hold a slight advantage (three wins, two defeats, four draws).

Coleman has won the only H2H meeting against Critchley, but this will likely feature multiple second-choice players and determined youngsters for both sides, as opposed to a more competitive League One clash. That's not to say either team will take this match lightly, though I'm predicting BTTS given their closely-contested history.
