Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crawley Town and Accrington Town, the two teams who were beaten by Forest Green and Colchester United respectively in their last league matches. The Red Devils have been slipping down the standings week by week and given their shaky defence, home win should not be considered. A man to watch in the home team will be forward Danilo Orsi-Dadomo, who scored a brace in the FA Cup loss to Notts County at the weekend.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Doncaster in their FA Cup debut. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards at the People’s Pension Stadium as the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment. As for the away team, experienced midfielder Seamus Conneely is pushing for a rare start after scoring as a substitute in the FA Cup draw.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
Crawley Town are an English football club that compete in the League 2. The club was founded back in 1896 and in the 2011/2012 season they secured promotion to the English fourth tier for the first time. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
