Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crewe Alexandra will be aiming to extend their winning run in the League Two to four games when they host Crawley Town at their Alexandra Stadium. The Railwaymen aim to overtake Swindon Town in the top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Crawley Town on Matchday 33. Charlie Kirk, who scored the winner against Oldham Athletic in the seventh minute of the stoppage time, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures. Crawley Town aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth, but given their anything but impressive away record in the League Two, we are tempted to put our money on David Artell’s men. It has to be noted that Crawley Town midfielder Josh Doherty returns from suspension.
