Accrington will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Oxford United when they take on AFC Wimbledon in League One action this weekend. John Coleman’s troops aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game. Coleman has no fresh injury worries ahead of the match, and he is likely to field the best possible side against AFC Wimbledon.
The Dons, on the other hand, aim to escape the relegation zone. AFC Wimbledon are eager to secure yet another League One survival, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the season finale if they are to meet the goal. Both Shayon Harrison and Archie Procter are likely to miss the game with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both Accrington and AFC Wimbledon will go all out for a win.
Accrington Stanley will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 2-1 League One success over Oxford United. For Accrington Stanley, the goals were scored by Paul Smyth (16') and Michael Nottingham (70'). Elliot Lee (25') was the scorer for Oxford United.
It’s been seldom in recent games that Accrington Stanley have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Stanley have seen their defence breached in five of their previous six games, shipping 14 goals along the way. That kind of trend might not be continued into this match, though.
Pre-game facts show that Accrington Stanley have not been beaten in the league by AFC Wimbledon in their last six head to head matches. They are unbeaten in their previous two home league matches.
Looking over their last six head-to-head clashes stretching back to May 2016 tells us that Accrington Stanley have won three of these six games and AFC Wimbledon have won none of them, with the tally of drawn games being three. 17 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 10 goals from Stanley and seven goals belonging to The Dons. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.83. The last league encounter between the two was a League One match in October 2020 which ended up with the score at AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Accrington Stanley.
