Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town and Wrexham square off against each other at The People’s Pension Stadium in what will be their first meeting in a competitive match since February 2011. Back then the two teams played out a goalless draw in the National League, but Wrexham are now seen as favourites to win Saturday’s encounter. The promotion-chasing visitors did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run in the English fourth tier. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Doncaster on Tuesday evening, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on the visiting team. As for the home team, talented midfielder Aaron Henry is widely expected to return to the starting XI.
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.
