Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town will look to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Salford City when they take on Morecambe in the League Two round 31. Jay Williams limped off with injury in the EFL Trophy defeat to Peterborough United, with Harry Ransom likely to step up. Crawley Town are eyeing their ninth home win of the process and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Morecambe. The good news for the hosts is that defender Mustapha Olagunju has joined the club on loan for the rest of the season.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Colchester United. Morecambe are eager to keep their playoffs hopes alive and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team, but Brandon Barker could sneak into the starting XI.
