Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Salford City continue with quite thrilling performances in 2020, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the League Two to four games thanks to a 1-1 draw with Port Vale. The Lions are still in the race for a place in the play-offs, and we predict that they are going to stick to their attacking style of play against Crawley Town. The Red Devils, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun of late, with the team beating Scunthorpe United 3-1 in their last league fixture.
Crawley Town have been creating a number of clear-cut opportunities to score in recent league games; therefore, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. You should know that Salford City and Crawley Town meet for the first time ever at the Peninsula Stadium.
