Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Alexandra Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crewe and AFC Wimbledon. Crewe aim to build on a 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in their last league match, with the team moving closer to the League One playoffs berth. The Railwaymen are undefeated in the previous nine league fixtures, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of AFC Wimbledon. Even though Luke Offord has joined Callum Ainley in the recovery room, home win should be considered.
The Dons, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding seven goals in total in back-to-back losses to Portsmouth (0-4) and Sunderland (0-3). In their last meeting in the League One Crewe defeated AFC Wimbledon, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. The Dons boss Glyn Hodges has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday’s clash.
