Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham Town and Crawley Town go head to head at Whaddon Road on day 5 of the new League Two campaign. Cheltenham quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Morecambe, with the team beating both Tranmere (3-0) and Leyton Orient (0-2) in the previous two league fixtures. The Robins aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s showdown.
Crawley, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late. The Reds did well to beat Oldham on the road on day 3, with the team failing to turn their dominance into victory in a 1-1 draw with Southend. Anyhow, given Crawley’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. When the two teams met at the People’s Pension Stadium in 2018 Cheltenham Town recorded a thrilling 5-3 win over Crawley Town.
