Opposition View

Accrington skipper Seamus Conneely looked ahead to tomorrow's clash at the Wham Stadium. The defender said: “It’s a big game for us and Rovers. We have to try and get three points, it’s important with the position we are in the league. We have had a couple of cup games which are a distraction from the league but we are back at it now.

“The fans are huge, if we can get this place rocking between now and the end of the season that will go an awful long way to seeing us where we want to be come the end of the season.

“But we have to be the ones to get the fans going, we have to produce, to play the way the manager wants us to play which is on the front foot, winning headers, challenges, playing good football and then the crowd react to that and it becomes a very difficult place for away teams to come.

“That’s what we want to make it between now and the end of the season. It’s an awful lot easier place to play with the home fans behind us.”

Tomorrow's man in the middle is Tom Nield. In his fifteen games this season, Nield has issued 42 yellow cards, but is yet to show a red one. He averages the awarding of 22 free-kicks for fouls per game. If Rovers supporters recognise Mr Nield, it's because he took charge of the 6-3 home defeat to Lincoln City earlier this season. 

What Are The Odds?

Rovers are priced at 13/10 to make it two wins in a row on the road, with the draw on offer at 12/5. If you fancy a stalemate, then a flutter on 'no goalscorer' is priced at 11/1. Top scorer Aaron Collins is a 2/1 shot to score at any time tomorrow, whilst the odds on Scott Sinclair opening the scoring are 9/1. Odds correct at the time of writing. Please bet responsibly.
