Half With Most Goals – Second

Accrington have the highest percentage of goals scored in the second half of any English team in the top 4 divisions. Stanley score a staggering 80% of their goals after the interval. Port Vale are not far behind with 67.5% of their goals scored in the second half. That’s why our first Accrington vs Port Vale prediction is for the game to have more goals in the second period.

BTTS

Our second Accrington vs Port Vale prediction backs both sides to score. This has happened in all of the last 4 H2H clashes. Also, 4 of Port Vale’s last 5 away matches had BTTS outcomes. The same happened in 3 of Accrington’s last 4 home games.

Over 2.5 Goals

Our final free betting tip is for the game to have at least 3 total goals. Both teams have issues defensively and with 4 of their last 5 H2Hs having at least 3 goals in them we see this happening again. Port Vale were involved in high-scoring matches in 2 of the last 3 rounds too.

Accrington vs Port Vale Lineups & News

Accrington

Accrington were humiliated in their visit to Exeter in the last round and they lost 0-5. It must be said the squad was very badly crippled for this match and this was the main reason why such a heavy defeat was registered. Stanley had last weekend free so this helped many of the ailing players to resume training.

Accrington sit in the relegation zone but with every chance of survival still alive the team’s motivation is very high.

The main boost for the coming match will be in defence where both centre-backs Tharme and Sangare are back after serving their bans. Also, important midfielders Hamilton and Coyle have resumed training and both might be considered. Still without 5 injured players. Among them, winger Pritchard and box-to-box midfielder Conneely are the most important ones.

Port Vale

Port Vale were very poor last weekend when losing 0-2 at home against the relegation-threatened Cambridge. The Valiants have been struggling for some time and they were able to win just 1 of their last 7 league games. Still hold a 7-point lead over the relegation zone but need to be careful.

Likely to make changes to the lineup after the shameful display last weekend. Benning and Holden were only on the bench in the last game but now both could start again. Remain without 3 key players. Both main centre-backs Jones and Cass are sidelined. So is the team’s vital chance-creator and best ball distributor Ben Garrity.
