Stockport vs Wolves U21 United Free Predictions
Stockport County and Wolves U21 meet for the first time. The EFL Cup fixture will be another test for Stockport, especially now that they need points to avoid being bottom of the Northern Group C table. Here is how our tipsters at Football Ground Guide have predicted the game to end:
Under 2.5 goals
Poor offensive play is to blame for lack of good results on both sides. While Wolves U21 scored 2-1 to win the first cup fixture in the Northern Group C against Shrewsbury Town, they haven’t done quite well in scoring goals since then. The visitors have scored a goal each in their last two games ahead of this trip. On the other hand, Stockport has scored 3 goals in their last three games but couldn’t hit the back of the net the last time out in a League Two match.
Only one team to score
Second Stockport vs Wolves U21 prediction is a goal or goals to be scored by only one team. The poor attacking witnessed in recent outings means we shouldn’t expect an exciting game in this second cup fixture. The best to expect here is goals on only one side.
Half-time to end square
Our third prediction for Stockport vs Wolves U21 EFL Cup fixture is a draw at half-time. Lack of good strikers is one reason to back this market. Also, the two teams look to defend better, especially the hosts who will be keen to avoid a second defeat in the competition. We expect a deadlocked first half.
Stockport vs Wolves U21 Preview
Stockport host Wolves U21 for the first time and in a league trophy clash. The hosts suffered a narrow 1-0 loss against Port Vale in the first 2022/23 EFL Trophy clash. They can still mount a challenge for the playoffs spot in this second game that comes with home advantage. The only worry for Stockport is a shaky run of form, having won just once in the last 8 games.
Wolves U21 put up a spirited fight against Stockport to win 2-1 against Shrewsbury in the Northern Group C of EFL Trophy. This assignment against Stockport, a league two side, could determine their chances in playoffs. The visitors sit at the top of the table and while they have not lost lost since the 2-1 league trophy win, back to back draws ahead of this clash should be a wake up call to the visitors.
