Accrington vs AFC Wimbledon by ScandinavianSR

Accrington Stanley FC was so close to an automatic promotion to League One. However, the 0:0 failure at home facing Stevenage had consequences, and consequently they were forced to take part in the playoff semi-finals against The Wombles, a team that, in its short history, has been extremely successful, being promoted five times in nine seasons, and going up from Combined Counties Premier to League Two.


At May 14th The Wombles welcomed Stanley at Kingsmeadow for the sixth time in over four years. For so long it looked like both sides had cancelled each other out after not finding enough space in the key areas on the field. However, two minutes after the five minutes of added injury-time, Beere T. (Wimbledon) hits a low shot into the bottom right hand corner. The Wombles has beaten the guests, and definitely has something to hold onto in the second leg of the playoff semi-finals.


[CB] Paul Robinson have been declared fit to play after being involved in the bruising challenge with Keen in the first leg. Francomb continues to be sidelined due to his crucial knee problems. In spite of that, both teams are looking forward to promotion.


Accrington are 2.05 to win and it will be a tough challenge facing Wimbledon's mean defence, who have conceded just once in six games. Neither of these two teams like conceding goals, and what is really rare for the home team is that they have not scored in two consecutive games after scoring in each of their previous 12.


At the end of the day, a draw between these two struggling teams at a 3.40 is truly pleasing and appealing to my senses, but on the other hand, the home team has to score in their second leg of the playoff semi-finals to continue having the chances of a promotion into League One. While I would love to go and recommend a 1-goal margin to the home team, the draw looks just as good. Still and all, I'm going to play Under 2.5 goals.
