Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town will look to put an end to their four-game losing run in all competitions when they take on Walsall on Tuesday evening. The Red Devils are stuck in the middle of the table and they are only one point clear of Walsall ahead of the midweek clash. Ronan Darcy is pushing for a recall to the starting XI, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Saddlers, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Newport County. As Walsall will go for a win in Tuesday’s encounter as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Keep in mind that the visitors will be without goalkeeper Owen Evans in the Broadfield Stadium clash as the 27-year-old misses out through suspension. In the first half of the season the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.
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.

Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
