hopefully that's not stuck in your head for the day
shrewsbury town v crawley town
interesting match here. a lot of people like shrewsbury and for good reason, they're in great form and besides the cheltenham match at home, crawley have not been scoring goals since selling Tubbs to bournemouth. shrews have only conceded >1.5 at home once this season, and i expect more of that stout defense against crawley who don't score many on the road. this game means a lot to both teams, as they sit in 4th and 5th (crawley two games at hand).
crawley started the season on a run of 7 road games in which none of the 7 landed on 2-3 goals (4,4,4,6,1,1,7). but in their last 7 road matches, they have landed on 2-3 goals 6 times (1-1 hitting 4 of those). their last road match they fell to swindon 3-0 (scoreline flattered swindon), so we'll see how they bounce back today.
you can't ignore shrewsbury's unbreaten home form this season at 11-3-0, with just 7 goals conceded. their 2-3 goal form has hit in 3 of last 4 at greenhous stadium.
my bet is going to be 2-3 goals
but i'm also going to take this a step further, as i see this being a tightly contested game with valuable points on the line, two smaller bets on
good luck with your bets
