Exeter vs Crawley Town (By: Saconex)
England League 2
Exeter City (7) vs Crawley Town (20)
Exeter are fighting for a promotion playoff spot and things looks pretty good as they got a gap of 4 points down to Carlisle (8). So with only 4 matches left to play, this one is for sure important. They are coming from their first victory in 4 matches when they won 2-0 at home vs Port Vale (18). No important missings reported, but defenders Aaron Martin, Wilson & Croll doubtful. Midfielder Lee Martin also doubtful.
Crawley also won their last match, ending 0-1 away vs Yeovil (23). That was their first win in 5 matches (0-1-4) and they are probably safe from relegation now. As it stands there is 9 points down to the relegation zone, and Crawley are welcoming bottom team Notts County (24) on Monday. I dont think the guests will stand a chance today against a top motivated Exeter. Midfielder Doherty doubtful. Will miss Payne & captain Smith for sure.
* The reverse fixture ended 1-1 in October
* 7 of 11 Exeter home victories ended with 2+ goals wins this season
I expect Exeter to win this one. They should be on fire from start taking in mind how important this one actually is. It is only 5 points down to Newport (12) and that only tells us how tight it can be for the last playoff spots, so a match like this should for sure end with 3 points for the hosts. Altough Crawley won the last match, their form isnt good at all. And when they probably dont have the same motivation as the guests overall, I believe this is a nice bet for today.
