Two struggling teams will face off on Saturday as Crawley welcomes Crewe Alexandra in round 19 of League Two.

The Reds are on a 6 match winless streak in all competitions which include 4 defeats. Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 3 of these games.

In the league they are on a 3 game losing streak as well, which makes this upcoming match crucial for their season.

Home form looks much better for them. In the last 5 games in front of their home crowd they have 2 wins and 2 defeats. At the moment they are winless in the last 2 league matches. Under 2.5 goals came in 3 of their recent home matches.

With this performance they are 13th in the table. They have lost half of their games so far and won 7. Also the Reds have conceded 30 goals, which is more than what they scored (24).

Things will be hard for them on Saturday as their opponents are coming into this game from a win.

The Alex are just a point behind their opponents for Saturday. But they are 15th in the table with 8 losses and 6 wins till now. They are also facing the defensive problems as they conceded 21, which is 2 more than what they scored.

A 4 match losing streak in all competitions came to an end with a win against Tranmere at home in the league. The match ended with a scoreline of 3-2 in favor of the hosts. Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 3 of their last 5 competitive matches.

Away from home, they have only 1 win in the last 6 matches in the league. Three of those 6 games ended as defeats as well. In 5 of those 6 matches, the final score had under 2.5 goals at the final whistle.

So I think this match will be a draw most possibly. Both the teams has won matches against some teams at the top of the table, so they both can win on their day.
