Crewe Alexandra vs Forest Green
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 20-March-2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Alexandra Stadium (Crewe).
Crewe Alexandra are in a difficult battle to maintain their league football status. They are on an uninspiring run and need to lift their game to gain some ground against the newly promoted Forest Green, who are on a similar sort of run.
The two sides are locked on 37 points sitting at 20th and 21st on the standings with a 7-point cushion over the relegation zone.
The Railwaymen lost 1-2 at home to Coventry on the weekend. The defeat came after a mini recovery that saw them thrash Lincoln City 4-1 and earn a point in the highscoring 2-2 draw at Stevanage.
Yet, David Artell’s men lack consistency to do anything substantial at this level. They have managed just 2 wins from their last 11 league games and lost 7 of those and their current league position is not a surprise.
Forest Green on the other hand had a good run in February as they finished the month unbeaten with 3 wins and 1 draw. However, things took a u-turn in March with the team picking 1 point from three games so far.
The Green Devils will be positive about their chances on Tuesday despite their last two games ending in defeats as those were against top of the table teams Accrington and Notts County. However, their away form remains extremely poor with no wins coming from the last 10.
Crewe Alexandra vs Forest Green: Head-to-head
The meetings between these two sides has been rare, the reason being Forest Green only become a Football League club this season.
The lone league meeting between them was in November 2017, won by Forest Green on a 3-2 margin.
Crewe Alexandra vs Forest Green: Prediction
The full-time result of this League 2 fixture could go either ways with the sides involved unable to perform at a consistent level throughout the stipulated 90 minutes. Although, we find good value in backing some bets from the goal-market.
Crewe have scored in their last 5 league games taking their tally to 11 in the period. Meanwhile, Green had found the back of the net in 7 consecutive League 1 games. Away from home, they scored 5 in the last three games. Therefore, both teams to score has to be the primary option for this fixture, while over 2.5 full-time goals and over 1.5 second half goals are good alternates.
