Swindon vs Crewe Prediction

Swindon failed to record back to back wins last week after Bradford City managed to hold them to a 1-1 draw at home. The hosts were in line to come away with the win in that matchup after their counterparts were trailing by a goal even in the closing stages of the game.

However, substitute Shay McCartan bagged the equalizer in the 89th minute, forcing the home side to settle for just a share of the spoils. Nevertheless, with fifty points in the bag, Swindon are still at the top of the League Two table.

On the other hand, Crewe have been tasting nothing but success in their past two games in the fourth division. Their most recent clash at home saw them thrash Carlisle with a 4-1 scorecard.

Be that as it may, it needs saying that the visitors have been erratic away from home. The guests have come away with the win just twice in their last five outings. That too, against sides that are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder.

Furthermore, Swindon have not been at the losing end in any of their previous seven League Two games at home. Given that six of their past seven meetings with each other here have also witnessed Swindon secure the bragging rights, Crewe are the underdogs to pick up all three points this weekend.

However, the hosts admitted defeat in the reverse fixture of this clash. Taking into account that Crewe have stumbled just thrice away from home this season, the safest punt would have to be none other than a double chance.

Additionally, Swindon have made their presence felt in the final third, especially at home. They have scored eight goals from their past four games here whilst conceding just once.

Crewe have not been shy in racking up the goals tally on the road either and have found the back of the net twenty times so far. Considering that all of their previous three h2h meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair in this one.
