Stanley’s winning start to the season came tumbling down in some fashion as they were beaten in a five goal thriller out at Yeovil on the weekend. So now it is back to home soil for them where they will be hoping to get some momentum back. They do have some decent unbeaten form going against Mansfield in the division, so they can look to that for some hope of getting three points on the board in this one. The match outright markets though are very tight with Mansfield having remained unbeaten in their opening two matches. The visitors are 6/4 at Sky Bet to win this with Accrington at 17/10.
The season opened brightly enough for Accrington as they stretched their legs in a 3-1 home win over Colchester. But they were beaten 3-2 out at Yeovil on the weekend. The positive from that though, is that they are at least scoring plenty of goals which will naturally put them in with a chance of getting something out of this fixture. Kayden Jackson has hit the ground running with three goals in two games for them. Clearly though, with no clean sheet in sight, they are still working things out at the back. But they have lost just one of their last thirteen home fixtures in League Two now.
The Stags have collected four points from their first two league games of the season so that has been a positive start from them. After their opening 2-2 draw at Crewe, they followed up with a solid 2-0 home win over Forest Green. So that is exactly two goals in both games so far this season from them. Forward Danny Rose has scored in both games so far, so he is one to watch in the goalscorer markets. The Stags have lost just one of their last six away from home in League two now (W3 D2 L1). Last season the Stags were the lowest scorers of the top fifteen in League Two, but have started well.
Head to Head News
The head to head form is fully with Accrington in this one as they have gone unbeaten in their last twelve league games against Mansfield (W7 D5), so that is fantastic form. Both matches between these last season through were drawn. Both teams have scored in three of the last four between these at Accrington. Accrington have scored at least two goals in seven of their previous League Two games against the Stags.
Top Betting Tips
Given the goals that the Reds have given up so far, coupled with the scoring that Mansfield have done, this should be pretty competitive and over 2.5 goals for even money at 10bet looks wonderful value. The Reds do have some great head to head form going which suggests that they won’t lose and may just have enough to edge the win so Accrington Match Result & Both Teams To Score is a 9/2 value tip.
