Both teams will find the net

These teams have serious defensive worries coming to this game. The hosts have leaked 15 goals in the last 5 games while Leicester U21 leaked 15 goals in as many matches. With such poor defending, goals on both sides are a highly probable outcome in this game.


Over 2.5

We are also tipping more than two goals full-time. Troubled defences that have leaked an average of 3 goals in the last five games will be a major concern for both teams coming to this game. Both teams have conceded at least two goals in four goals in four of their last six games. Both teams also lost three of their last five games, fixtures that ended with at least three goals scored.

The hosts to open the scoring

Our third pick backs Accrington Stanley to open the scoring. The visitors scored a goal in the first EFL Trophy fixture against Fleetwood, the very last goal of a match they lost 4-1. The hosts opened the scoring in the first Group G game against Barrow. All the goals for Accrington were scored in open play while Barrow netted one from a spot-kick.

The hosts dramatically won the first match after 2-2 level in regular time. Accrington comes to this game with two points after edging out Barrow 5-4 in the penalty shootout. While defensive woes should worry head coach, John Coleman, home advantage puts the host in pole position to bag all points in this fixture. The hosts come to this game with a 2-1 victory over Ipswich in League 1, the only victory in the last five matches. Building on that victory is the main focus of the hosts in this fixture.

Leicester U21

After a 4-1 defeat in the first EFL Trophy, Northern Group G fixture against Fleetwood Town, the visitors haven’t played any other game. They come to this game after a month of rest. The much-rested Leicester U21 should put in a shift in this fixture to grab a point or more.
