Tip Reasoning

  • Accrington have conceded fewer than two goals in four of their six League One home games this season.
  • Plymouth have scored fewer than two goals in three of their last five games.
  • Plymouth frontman Ryan Hardie has now gone seven games without a goal while probable strike partner Kieran Agard hasn’t yet scored in the league this term.

Stanley system can stymie Pilgrims’ progress 

Accrington Stanley have lost only once at home this season and should prove tough opponents for promotion-chasing Plymouth Argyle on Saturday afternoon.

Since the Lancashire club’s only reverse at Wham Stadium, John Coleman’s side have beaten Ipswich and drawn with Portsmouth either side of a 5-0 EFL Trophy thrashing of Leicester City’s youngsters, so they should be full of confidence.

Coleman’s 3-5-1-1 system means they hardly ever get overrun in midfield and nine goals scored in six home games suggests it isn’t cramping their style too much in attack.

Visitors Plymouth have scored in all but one of their road trips in 2021-22, but couldn’t break the deadlock in their 0-0 FA Cup first round draw at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend. Argyle are a team that do exploit attacking set-piece situations well, with almost a quarter of their league goals coming from such situations.

Coleman’s side can handle set-piece threat 

But one of their biggest aerial threats will be missing as Brendan Galloway away on international this week and Accrington have already beaten two sides with greater set-piece success in Rotherham and Fleetwood.

Therefore, the odds on Plymouth not getting two goals on Saturday look like a bit of value. The Pilgrims haven’t got a second goal in three of their last five games while striker Ryan Hardie is going through a bit of a barren spell with no goal in his last seven games.

Accrington have conceded fewer than two goals in four of their six League One home games this season and we like their chances of doing the same on Saturday in a 1-1 draw that would match Plymouth’s result at lowly Morecambe in their last away league trip.
