Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Alexandra Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crewe Alexandra and Doncaster Rovers. The Railwaymen are eyeing their third consecutive league win and a triumph over Doncaster could see them climb to the playoffs berth. Christopher Long remains in the recovery room, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the round 19 clash.
The Donny, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-0 loss to AFC Wimbledon, but given their difficulties on the road, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the home side. To make things even more complicated for the away team, defender Joseph Olowu suffered an injury in the last league match. You should bear in mind that in their last encounter in the English fourth tier Crewe recorded a 2-0 win over Doncaster.
Highlighted Team (Crewe):
Crewe Aleandra are a professional football club that welcome their rivals at Gresty Road. The stadium was built in 1906, and it can hold up to 10,153 spectators. Founded back in 1877, Crewe Alexandra play their home games in red shirts and white shorts, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Railwaymen played their first game against North Staffs in 1877, with the two teams sharing the spoils (1-1) at Alexandra Recreation Ground. Nowadays, Crewe compete in the League 2 where they take on their main rivals Port Vale. In 2014 a match between the two sides resulted in violence and arrests. The likes of Wrexham, Macclesfield Town, Shrewsbury Town, and Stoke City are considered the club’s rivals as well.
In 2013 Crewe Alexandra clinched the Football League Trophy as they defeated Southend United 2-0 in the title game at Wembley Stadium. Goals from Max Clayton and Luke Murphy helped the Railwaymen clinch their first and only Football League Trophy.
