Accrington - Sunderland

Asian Handicap
Pick: Sunderland -0.5
Odds: 2
Stake: 1

Match date: 17/03/2021

Interesting match tonight at Crown Ground where the hosts Accrington Stanley play against high flying Sunderland.

The black cats are in a great form lately, maybe their best of the season and are coming to this match in great spirit after winning the 2020/21 Papa John's Trophy final after a narrow 1-0 victory over Tranmere at Wembley on Sunday.

Sunderland has won six of their last seven games in League One conceding only one goal in those seven games. This great run has brought them in third place currently and their aim is obviously the first two places for direct promotion. The battle will be hard as there are four teams capable of finishing in first two places so every point is very important now on. With a win tonight Sunderland could move up to third place while they do have also games in hand, especially the one against the leaders Hull City. So in terms of continuity another win tonight is very important for the black cats.

The hosts Accrington Stanley on the other hand have had a good season by their standards, sitting four points outside the playoffs, but the recent crisis in results has kept them back and I hardly believe that they will make the playoffs. Their current form is not good having achieved just five points in last seven games. This has been also a result of an injury crisis in the team and for tonight they will miss a large number of players out injured, including goalkeeper Baxter, captain Conneely, striker Bishop, defender Sykes and winger Pritchard.

Sunderland also has some injured players, like defender Flanagan and Denver Hume, but tonight they will welcome back Dion Sanderson and Carl Winchester, who were cup tied at the weekend.

?To sum up, in this match I will back Sunderland to continue their recent good form being also fired up by their success in winning Papa John's Trophy and to take advantage of the current bad form and the important missing players of their rivals. 

WIN Score: 0:2 Profit: +1
