Salford City vs Crewe Prediction
Salford City dropped points for the fifth time in the running after they managed no more than a 1-1 draw against Bradford City on the road last week. The host have garnered just two points from a possible fifteen, and are currently sitting fourteenth on the ladder, twelve points adrift of third-placed Crewe.
On the other hand, the visitors are on a solid run of form at the moment. Their last clash on the road saw them run riot over Stevenage with a whopping 5-1 scorecard. They have not been at the losing end in any of their past six games either, that too in all competitions.
It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent have been a force to reckon with, even in their outings. The visitors have admitted defeat just twice away from home, and are unbeaten in their last two as well.
In sharp contrast, Salford City have been struggling to get things going for them at Peninsula Stadium. With zero wins from their last four games here, it goes without saying that home advantage has been rendered redundant. As such, count on Crewe to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Furthermore, the visiting contingent have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet. They have found the back of the net nineteen times so far, which is the second-most by any side in the cluster.
Meanwhile, Salford City have been far too easy to breach in their own defensive third. Nineteen of the thirty-one goals that they have conceded so far have come from their clashes at home.
Moreover, the home side were at the receiving end of four goals when then two sides last locked horns in September. As such, expect Crewe to rack up the goals tally effortlessly come Thursday.
