Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After failing to find the net in the previous two league fixtures, Stevenage will be looking to return to winning ways in the League Two when they host Crawley Town at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Boro aim to escape the relegation zone in the League Two standings, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence. It has to be noted that Stevenage are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the English fourth tier.
Crawley Town, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, meaning that the relegation strugglers will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. The Reds recorded only one win in the last eleven league fixtures, meaning that the lack of confidence should be the team’s main problem in Saturday’s clash at Lamex Stadium.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
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. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
The stadium has a capacity of 6,144 spectators and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. Crawley Town are well known for their red home kit, with the team wearing white shirts and sky blue shorts when playing on the travels. Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
In 1959 the Devils won the Metropolitan League Cup, which is considered one of the club’s biggest successes. Crawley Town won the Sussex Professional Cup in 1970, the Gilbert Rice Floodlight Cup in 1980 and 1984, the Southern Counties Combination Floodlight Cup in 1986, and the Sussex Senior Cup in 1990 and 1991.
