Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Swindon Town will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back losses to Shrewsbury Town and Portsmouth when they take on Crewe Alexandra on Saturday afternoon. The Robins are eager to escape the relegation zone in the League One standings, but seeing that they have been struggling in front of goal of late, home win should not be considered. All Caddis, Omotoye, and Twine are pushing for a start.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Peterborough, and the fact that they defeated Shrewsbury in their last away game is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Wiltshire. Crewe are after their fifth away win of the process, and they should take advantage of the current atmosphere in Swindon Town’s dressing room. In the first half of the season Crewe outplayed Swindon 4-2.
