Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Walsall and Crawley Town go head to head at Bescot Stadium on day 11 of the new League Two campaign. The Saddlers have subscribed to sharing the spoils with their rivals, with the team already drawing seven games in the process, but they will surely give 100% to pick up all three points from the midweek game. Elijah Adebayo, who found the net in the 1-1 draw with Mansfield, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
Crawley Town, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Tranmere and Cambridge United. The Red Devils have been improving their game week by week, but beating Walsall on the road is easier said than done. Considering that Crawley midfielder Jake Hesketh misses the game through suspension, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
Crawley Town are an English football club that compete in the League 2. The club was founded back in 1896 and in the 2011/2012 season they secured promotion to the English fourth tier for the first time. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
The stadium has a capacity of 6,144 spectators and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. Crawley Town are well known for their red home kit, with the team wearing white shirts and sky blue shorts when playing on the travels. Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
In 1959 the Devils won the Metropolitan League Cup, which is considered one of the club’s biggest successes. Crawley Town won the Sussex Professional Cup in 1970, the Gilbert Rice Floodlight Cup in 1980 and 1984, the Southern Counties Combination Floodlight Cup in 1986, and the Sussex Senior Cup in 1990 and 1991.
