Accrington Stanley vs Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth make the long journey up north to play fellow promotion rivals Accrington on Saturday which will surely be a heavily contested clash.

Plymouth sit in one of the automatic promotion spots in League Two, level on points with 2nd place Oxford but are both a massive 13 points behind the leaders Northampton. While Accrington occupy one of the play-off places with a game in hand, a win on Saturday and they will be in sight of an automatic spot themselves.

Both sides last met in October, Argyle scraped a 1-0 victory at home, so this will most likely be another tight affair as both sides look to progress into the 3rd tier. The pair have only won 1 game out of their last 5 and this will surely play a factor in this crucial promotion chasing game.

Billy Kee will be the one to watch for Stanley with 11 goals to his name this season. Whilst Argyle have boosted their options by signing Chelsea youngster Jordan Houghton on loan until the end of May but they will be without striker Ryan Brunt who suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury and could be out for up to 9 months.

This could be a high scoring game with both teams having options of talented attacking players, and with the prize of League One football drawing nearer every week, this game could be crucial in deciding that.
