Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town and Walsall square off against each other at the People’s Pension Stadium in the League Two round 26. The Red Robins have been producing splendid displays ever since they suffered a 3-1 loss to Morecambe, with the team beating all Tranmere, Salford, and Mansfield in the previous three league fixtures. Crawley aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash.
The Saddlers, on the other hand, failed to win the previous eight league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to their three-game goalless run. Since the visitors are likely to go for a win in Tuesday’s clash as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Norman, McDonald, and Osei Yaw are pushing for a start for the visiting team, while Tilley, who scored the winner against the Yellows, should be recalled to Crawley’s starting XI.
