Crewe Alexandra vs Fleetwood Town
England League One
Date: Saturday, 26 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Alexandra Stadium.
Boxing Day action in English League One is also offering a lot of interesting duels and matchups. One of those is taking place in Cheshire where Crewe Alexandra welcomes Fleetwood Town. Both sides are considered as candidates for playoff participation, but there were some slip-ups happening in November, especially for hosts.
Crewe have been on fire lately, managing to win four out of the last five matches, while the remaining one ended as 1-1 draw against Burton Albion. That was a bit surprising considering the fact opponent is last placed team on the table. On the other hand, Fleetwood are not doing so well, gathering just five points in the last five outings. In terms of the odds, hosts are warm favorites at 2.10 odds to win the match.

Crewe vs Fleetwood Prediction
Home team has dealt with some pretty nasty teams in the recent past. Beating Swindon Town, Northampton, Plymouth and AFC Wimbledon in the last 20 days is surely one hell of an achievement. Besides that, Crewe have scored total of 11 goals in the last five matches. Defenders haven’t been in best shape though, keeping zero clean sheets. All these wins have pushed team to the 9th place, having 29 points and being just one win away from the playoffs zone.
The current stats at this stadium are six wins, one draw and three losses. As for their opposition, not only Fleetwood plays bad in the recent weeks, but they also have very high loss rate on the road. Fishermen suffered five defeats in nine away days. We are expecting hosts to continue with phenomenal results and collect all three points on Saturday.
