Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County and Crewe Alexandra square off against each other at Rodney Parade in the last match of the regular season. The Exiles have been having their ups and downs in the season finale, with the team beating both Doncaster and Gillingham, while losing to Mansfield and Harrogate. The Welsh outfit aim to give fans yet another reason to celebrate, but Monday’s clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Both Kavanagh and Charsley are pushing for a start as Graham Coughlan should opt to make changes to the team that defeated the Gills.
Crewe, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Swindon (2-1) and Bradford (3-2). Since the visitors have been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. The opposition back-line should have Daniel Agyei at bay as he scored a brace in the last league match.
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.
