Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town play host to Crewe Alexandra at the People’s Pension Stadium on day 31 of the 2022/2023 League Two campaign. The start of the year has been a mixed bag for the Red Devils, who shared the spoils with Newport County, defeated Salford City, while losing to Gillingham. Crawley are eager to escape the danger zone, and they are surely capable of matching the out-of-sorts visitors on home soil. Barring any fresh injury worries, Scott Lindsey is unlikely to make changes to the team that faced the Gills.
Meanwhile, Crewe suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Grimsby Town and Leyton Orient in the last two league fixtures. Since the visiting side have been struggling in front of goal of late, we are going to bet on Crawley this time out. David Amoo limped off with injury at the weekend, with Bassala Sambou likely to step up.
Highlighted Team (Crewe):
Crewe Aleandra are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at Gresty Road. The stadium was built in 1906, and it can hold up to 10,153 spectators. Founded back in 1877, Crewe Alexandra play their home games in red shirts and white shorts, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Railwaymen played their first game against North Staffs in 1877, with the two teams sharing the spoils (1-1) at Alexandra Recreation Ground. Nowadays, Crewe compete in the League 2 where they take on their main rivals Port Vale. In 2014 a match between the two sides resulted in violence and arrests. The likes of Wrexham, Macclesfield Town, Shrewsbury Town, and Stoke City are considered the club’s rivals as well.
In 2013 Crewe Alexandra clinched the Football League Trophy as they defeated Southend United 2-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium. Goals from Max Clayton and Luke Murphy helped the Railwaymen clinch their first and only Football League Trophy.
