Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crawley Town and Sutton, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Red Devils are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Ronan Darcy, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
Sutton are stuck at the bottom of the table, with the team collecting only four points in total from possible 27 and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Crawley’s party at The People’s Pension Stadium. Hisham Kasimu is pushing for a rare start after scoring as a substitute in the EFL Cup defeat to Port Vale. In their last encounter at the venue Sutton defeated Crawley 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
Crawley Town are an English football club that compete in the League 2. The club was founded back in 1896 and in the 2011/2012 season they secured promotion to the English fourth tier for the first time. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
The stadium has a capacity of 6,144 spectators and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. Crawley Town are well known for their red home kit, with the team wearing white shirts and sky blue shorts when playing on the travels. Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
In 1959 the Devils won the Metropolitan League Cup, which is considered one of the club’s biggest successes. Crawley Town won the Sussex Professional Cup in 1970, the Gilbert Rice Floodlight Cup in 1980 and 1984, the Southern Counties Combination Floodlight Cup in 1986, and the Sussex Senior Cup in 1990 and 1991.
