Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Tuesday’s League One game between Crawley Town and Bristol Rovers. The Red Devils head into the match following back-to-back draws with Oldham and Scunthorpe, and they are eager to return to winning ways as soon as possible. Crawley Town are ten points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts.
Striker Tom Nichols is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. The Pirates, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Newport County. Since both sides are likely to go for a win in the postponed fixture, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. Connor Taylor is rated doubtful for the visitors, while both Alfie Kilgour and Joshua Grant remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Kwesi Appiah ):
Born in Thamesmead, England on August 12, 1990, Kwesi Appiah is a professional footballer who plays for AFC Wimbledon in the League One. Due to his dual citizenship, Appiah is eligible to play for Ghana and he made his debut with the Black Stars in a 2-1 win over South Africa on January 27, 2015.
The pacey forward scored his first goal for the national team in a 3-0 win over Guinea on February 1, 2015. Appiah started his club career at Ebbsfleet United, but the list of clubs he played for is pretty long.
Appiah wore Peterborough United, Weymouth, King’s Lynn, Kettering Town, Brackley Town, Thurrock, Margate, Crystal Palace, Aldershot Town, Yeovil Town, Cambridge United, Notts County, Reading and Viking shirts before signing a permanent deal with AFC Wimbledon in 2017. His main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both second striker and left winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Bristol Rovers):
Established back on August 1, 1883, Bristol Rovers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. Bristol Rovers were formed after a meeting at the Eastville Restaurant under the name of Black Arabs after the Arabs rugby team.
This name, though, lasted no more than one season as the club was renamed Eastville Rovers in 1884. Five years later the club’s name was officially changes to Bristol Rovers. Nicknamed the Pirates, Bristol Rovers welcome their opponents at Memorial Stadium Horfield, the venue with the capacity of 12,296. Bristol Rovers are well known for their blue and white home kit, but they are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels.
Ricky Lambert, who used to play for the likes of Southampton and Liverpool in the Premier League, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable footballers. It has to be noted that Lambert scored 51 goals in 128 appearances for the Pirates in the league.
