Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Grander Green Lane pits together Sutton and Crewe. The hosts are determined to book their spot in the playoffs and their three-match winning run is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Crewe. Barring any fresh injury worries, head coach Matt Gray is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Newport County at the weekend.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last three league fixtures. Since Crewe have little to play for in the second half of the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In the first half of the season Crewe defeated Sutton thanks to Courtney Baker-Richardson’s goal, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. To make things even worse for the away side, defender Connor O’Riordan is banned for the match.
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.
