Accrington Stanley will welcome Sunderland to Wham Stadium for a matchday 28 fixture in England EFL League One. The last meeting on 11th September 2021 ended in a Sunderland 2-1 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Accrington Stanley has won 0 matches, and Sunderland triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 3.71 goals, while both teams score 71% of the time.
Accrington Stanley's last game in the England EFL League One against Milton Keynes Dons at home ended in a 1-1 draw. They were lucky to collect one point since they played less with the ball and attempted fewer shots. Accrington Stanley scored before halftime in the 9th minute.
Sunderland's recent game against Lincoln City ended in a home 1-3 loss. The Black Cats had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Sunderland deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 68th minute.
Since the start of the season, Accrington Stanley is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 14 games on home soil. Although Accrington Stanley is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 29% home clean sheets.
Sunderland has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Sunderland wins 1.43 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Sunderland kept a clean sheet in just 14% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Accrington Stanley has won just 50% of home games. On average they score 1.50 goals and concede 1.43 per game. Sunderland is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Accrington Stanley wins on average 1.71 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Sunderland. My prediction is Sunderland to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.19 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 66% of Accrington Stanley's home and Sunderland's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Accrington Stanley has scored in 93% of home games. Sunderland is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
