Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Plymouth play host to Crewe at their Home Park in the League One round 10 on Tuesday evening. The Pilgrims have been in a fine form of late, with the team winning three of their last four league fixtures. Plymouth are determined to secure a top-six finish, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. One of the men to watch in the home team will be Wales international Luke Jephcott, who scored his fourth goal of the season at the weekend.
Ryan Lowe has no fresh injury worries, and he is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Doncaster. The Railwaymen, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only 6 points from possible 27. Since the visitors are low on spirits ahead of the midweek clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Experienced attacker Chris Porter could be recalled to Crewe’s starting XI after finding the net against Rotheram.

Highlighted Team (Crewe):
Crewe Aleandra are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at Gresty Road. The stadium was built in 1906, and it can hold up to 10,153 spectators. Founded back in 1877, Crewe Alexandra play their home games in red shirts and white shorts, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit.

Nowadays, Crewe compete in the League 2 where they take on their main rivals Port Vale. In 2014 a match between the two sides resulted in violence and arrests. The likes of Wrexham, Macclesfield Town, Shrewsbury Town, and Stoke City are considered the club’s rivals as well.
In 2013 Crewe Alexandra clinched the Football League Trophy as they defeated Southend United 2-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium. Goals from Max Clayton and Luke Murphy helped the Railwaymen clinch their first and only Football League Trophy.
