Our prediction for this League 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Crawley Town and Salford City face each other at the People’s Pension Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Red Devils kicked off the new League Two campaign with a 1-0 loss to Hartlepool, but they were not in action at the weekend. Defender Jordan Tunnicliffe, who limped off with injury in the season opener, is unlikely to feature in the midweek game.
The Lions, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draws with the likes of Leyton Orient and Sutton. Salford City are not regarded as good travelers, which is probably the main reason why away win should not be considered. A close encounter is on the cards at the People’s Pension Stadium, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.
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 (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
