The following are our best free predictions for the match:

Both teams to score

We expect Salford City vs Accrington Stanley to end with both teams on the score sheet. They occupy the first and second positions respectively in Northern Group D of EFL Trophy. Both sides hit the target in the first match. The hosts scored two while Accrington found the back of the net twice in the first group stage game. Also noting that the only previous duel between the teams had goals on both sides, we predict a similar outcome in this second meeting.

Salford to score first

Our second Salford City vs Accrington Stanley prediction backs the home team to hit the back of the net first. Being top of the table and playing at home are factors that should spur Salford to another win. With home support and a better defense and even record in the last five games, Salford is our pick to score first.

Salford over 1.5 goals

Both teams scored at least two goals in the first game of the competition. In the only previous duel, Salford won 2-1. We don’t expect the hosts to lose. Moreover, Salford lost only once in their last five game across all competitions while Accrington suffered three defeats in as many matches.

Salford City vs Accrington Stanley Preview


Salford City hopes to extent their lead trophy lead at the top of Nothern Group D. a 2-1 victory against Liverpool U21 in the first match of the competitition should be motivating enough. And with a previous 2-1 victory over Accrington in the only clash with the visitors (also in the league trophy), a second home victory against Accrington isn't far from being actualized.

Accrington Stanley

Accrington Stanley is second on Northern Group D of the England Football League Trophy. This is their second trip to Salford to face the hosts in the same competition. A 2-1 defeat in the previous duels is still fresh in the minds of the visitors because it is barely three years since that defeat. However, a shaky form of 2W and 3L in the last five games in all competitions is something the visitors should look into to avoid a second away defeat in Salford.
