Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Exeter City will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Northampton Town when they host Crawley Town at their St. James Park. The Grecians are eyeing automatic promotion to the League One and you should bear in mind that they defeated the likes of Stevenage (2-1) and Oldham Athletic (5-1) in the previous two home games. Crawley Town, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the standings.
Seeing that the visitors have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. It has to be noted that Crawley Town have yet to record a win on the road in the 2019/20 season. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Ryan Bowman, who has netted 12 goals in the league so far this term.
Highlighted Player (Jake Taylor):
Jake Taylor is a product of the Reading football academy who plays for Exeter City in the League Two. Taylor spent his youth career at Reading, and he continued wearing the blue and white shirt at senior level.

In 2016 Jake Taylor returned to Exeter City, signing a permanent deal with the St James Park outfit.
Despite being born in Ascot, England, on December 1, 1991, Taylor represents Wales on the international stage. He has ten caps with the Wales U21 team, and he made his debut with the Dragons at the senior level in a 2-1 win over Cyprus on October 13, 2014. His primary position is central midfielder.

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.
