Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Swindon Town welcome Crewe Alexandra to their County Ground in what is expected to be an interesting League Two game. The Robins were not in action at the weekend as their game with Colchester was postponed due to waterlogged pitch, with the team suffering elimination to Peterborough in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. Swindon are eager to record their first win of the season and you should know that boss Michael Flynn has no fresh selection worries.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, did well to shock Sunderland in their EFL Cup opener and given their fine performance in a come-from-behind 2-2 draw with Mansfield Town, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from Saturday’s encounter. Crewe forward Elliott Nevitt is widely expected to return to the starting XI after he was rested in the midweek game.
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.
