England League 2
Crewe Alexandra (19) vs Notts County (1)
Table neighbours from last season are facing tonight, Notts finished in 16th, Crewe in 17th. This season it seems to be different, as Notts looks very sharp in the top of the league.
Crewe are struggling at the moment and have lost 7 of last 9 league matches. They are coming from another away loss vs Yeovil (17) last time, losing it 2-0. Before this they won though, at home vs Stevenage (9), ending 1-0 after a late winning goal. Their home record is 3-2-2 and 10-10 in goal difference. With only 3 goals scored last 7 matches, its easy to think that they will have trouble with finding the net against one of the the best teams in the league tonight. Striker Chris Dagnall are reported doubtful for tonight. Midfielder Ryan Wintle are injured.
Notts are placed at the top with a total record of 9-2-2 and 24-13 in goal difference. They are coming from the 2-1 home win vs Barnet (21) last time out, but their last away match ended with a loss, 3-1 vs Mansfield (11). Notts knows that they are getting pushed from several teams behind them and a new slip tonight is not affordable. Their away record is 4-0-2. First goalkeeper Adam Collin are reported doubtful after the injury last match.
* This match ended 2-2 last season.
* Meetings since 2010: 0-3-6.
Notts are, as it stands, a contender for promotion this season. They looks sharp and have impressed this season. In away matches like the 0-3 win vs Exeter (2) they showed their class. Crewe are in a opposite situation, their problems in getting goals scored have to be figured out, and even if they manage to put the guests under pressure tonight, Notts will take their counters when they come.
I expect the guests to win this match. Exeter (2) and Luton (3) are facing at the same time, and Accrington (4) are facing a good home team in Stevenage (9). A gap in the top can be the outcome if Notts manage to win this.
