Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stockport County will look to build on back-to-back wins over Tranmere and Harrogate when they take on Crawley Town in the League Two round 32. The hosts are determined to book their spot in the playoffs, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash. Barring any fresh injury worries, head coach Dave Challinor is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed the Sulphurites at the weekend.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone, but given poor away record (0-6-7) in the 2022/2023 campaign, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. There are no fresh injury concerns in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Cheshire. In the first half of the season Crawley defeated Stockport, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
