Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Promotion hopefuls Wrexham will look to bounce back from a massive 5-0 loss to Stockport County when they take on Crewe in the League Two round 10. Wrexham are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Experienced forward Ollie Palmer is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming off the bench in the last league fixture.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun of late and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Wrexham defenders should have Christopher Long at bay as the 28-year-old forward scored a brace in a 2-1 win over Colchester. When the two teams met in the League Cup in 2003 Crewe defeated Wrexham 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
