Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage play host to Crewe at their Broadhall Way in a postponed League Two match. The Boro did well to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Rochdale, with the team beating Walsall 3-1 in front of home fans, and, no doubt, that helped the team regain a much-needed confidence. All David Amoo, Zac Williams, and Chris Long are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Salford City at the weekend, but seeing that the promotion-chasing hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Steve Evans’ troops. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Daniel Agyei, who scored a brace at the weekend, whilst all David Amoo, Zac Williams, and Chris Long remain in the recovery room.
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.
After scoring two goals in 31 appearances with the Royals in the league, the English footballer spent several seasons on loan at the likes of Aldershot Town, Exeter City, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Leyton Orient, and Motherwell. 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.
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.
