Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Crewe and Wycombe take on each other at Alexandra Stadium on day 37 of the current League One campaign. The Chairboys did well to roll over Cambridge United 3-0 in midweek, with the team moving closer to the playoffs berth, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-six finish. A man to watch in the away team will be Albania midfielder Anis Mehmeti, who impressed (two goals and one assist) in the last league match.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Cheltenham, and they managed to get one, with the team keeping their survival hopes alive. Anyhow, Wycombe are more of a team than Crewe, and we predict that the promotion-chasing visitors are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. Both Mikael Mandron and Scott Kashket are injured for the home side.
Highlighted Player (Will Jaaskelainen ):
Will Jaaskelainen is a Finland international who plays for Crewe Alexandra as a goalkeeper. Jaaskelainen started his youth career at Bolton Wanderers, but he made his senior debut with his current club. The Finnish shot-stopper played for the likes of Loughborough Dynamo, Nantwich Town, Buxton, and Chester on loan as well before returning to Crewe Alexandra.
Will Jaaskelainen has one cap for the Finland U19 national team, with the talented goalkeeper making his Finland U21 team debut in a 2-0 win over Ukraine on September 6, 2019. Speaking of his League Two debut, Jaaskelainen played his first match for the Railwaymen on April 19, 2019, in a 2-0 win over Yeovil Town.
The Crewe Alexandra shot-stopper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. Born on July 25, 1998, in Bolton, Will Jaaskelainen is the son of former Bolton Wanderers and Finland goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.
Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
