Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crewe Alexandra quickly bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Salford City, with the team beating Scunthorpe United 3-1 on home soil. The Railwaymen are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach against Carlisle United, who sit in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Chesire. Crewe Alexandra have been scoring goals for fun at home ground of late; therefore, we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Wednesday afternoon.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, did well to put an end to their six-game winless run in the League Two, with the team beating ten-man Walsall at Bank’s Stadium. Walsall, though, will have a much bigger fish to fry against Crewe, who are eyeing their seventh home win in the league. When the two teams met at Brunton Park in the first half of the season the Railwaymen defeated the Cumbrians 4-2.
