Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crawley Town and Barrow. Crawley failed to win the previous six league fixtures, meaning that boss John Yems feels pressure ahead of the visit of Barrow. The Red Devils are eyeing their fifth home win of the season, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be Max Watters, who scored a brace in the 3-3 draw with Mansfield Town at the weekend.
The newcomers, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their previous three league fixtures. Since Barrow have been struggling in front of goal of late, we believe that the time has come for Crawley Town to return to winning ways in the English fourth tier. Defender Kgosi Ntlhe is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Lewis Young ):
Lewis Young is an experienced defender who plays for Crawley Town in the League Two. Young has a very interesting football career as he played for eight English clubs before joining Crawley Town.
The Watford product had an opportunity to play for the likes of Hereford United, Burton Albion, Forest Green, Northampton Town, Yeovil Town, Aldershot Town, and Bury, but he has never received a call-up for the England national team. Lewis Young wears the No. 2 shirt at Crawley Town’s primary position is right-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a right midfielder as well.

Lewis Young has a dual citizenship as his father is of Jamaican descent. He was born in Stevenage, England on September 27, 1989.
Highlighted Team (Barrow):
Founded back in 1901, Barrow is an English club that competes in the League two, the fourth tier of the English football system. The Bluebirds are well known for their blue shirts with white details, but yellow is the dominant colour of their away jersey. Barrow play home games at Holker Street, the stadium which can hold up to 5,045 spectators.
The venue was opened in 1909, and it has to be noted that no fewer than 16,874 people attended the FA Cup match between Barrow and Swansea in January, 1954. The Bluebirds have won two FA Trophies (1989/90, 2009/10), with the team lifting the Lancashire Senior Cup trophy in the 1954/55.
The likes of James Bell, Jim Collins, Andy McLaren, Jimmy Mulholland, Jackie Robertson, Barry Diamond, and George King are the most notable footballers who played for Barrow in the past. It has to be noted that the Bluebirds have never competed in the English top flight.
