Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 3-2 loss to Mansfield Town, Stockport County will look to get back on course when they face Crawley Town on Saturday afternoon. The Bluebirds defeated Barrow in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Crawley, but keep in mind that they seem to be struggling at the back. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team.
The Red Devils, meanwhile, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-0 loss to Swindon and they face yet another tough challenge against Stockport, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. In their last meeting at the venue the Bluebirds defeated the Red Devils 2-1 and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Both Roles and Forster are pushing for a start as Crawley boss Scott Lindsey should opt to make changes to the team that suffered the massive defeat at County Ground.
