Crawley Town vs. Exeter City (13:00) betting tip
The recent Colchester United triumph aside, Crawley Town have been in awful form following their FA Cup run, and now find themselves as the very epitome of mid-table mediocrity when it had appeared prior to January, they might make a challenge for the top seven. The major problem currently for the Red Devils has been scoring goals since the departure of 21 year old striker Max Watters to Championship outfit Cardiff City. Ashley Nadesan has not troubled the scoresheet nearly enough since joining permanently in 2019, and his teammates in defence will be up against the highest scorers in the division, Exeter City. The Grecians also beat Colchester, this time on Tuesday, and have now clawed their way back into play-off contention after a wretched early winter period. Matt Jay’s strikes whilst moving between operating as a striker and in attacking midfield have helped their cause significantly, and there’s little to suggest he and they won’t add to their tally significantly at Broadfield Stadium.
Harrogate Town’s last six matches in the league have yielded three wins and three draws, all but ensuring at the very least that their stay in the EFL won’t be all too brief. The Sulphurites will welcome Grimsby Town to Wetherby Road on Saturday, and long-time manager Simon Weaver will be hoping for a touch more consistency from his side as the final third of the campaign gets underway in earnest. The 1-0 win in midweek at home to Mansfield Town might just have been their most impressive result of the term, and they will need a similar level of performance against the Mariners. Although still bottom of the pile, the victory over Crawley felt like it could be a real turning point for Paul Hurst’s men, and winger Joe Adams, on loan from Brentford, scored one and set up the other in the 2-1 triumph. Hurst will be banking on more coming from the hot prospect, as well as his midfield five supplying the ammunition to Stefan Payne to fire them away from the relegation zone.
Southend United pulled off the best result of midweek in League Two by far, besting Forest Green Rovers 3-1 in their own backyard, courtesy of two utterly outstanding goals that are worthy of repeat viewing on YouTube. That priceless win kept their collective heads above the relegation zone for the time being, although Mark Mosley will be more than cognisant that both Barrow and Grimsby have two games in hand on the Shrimpers. More goals will be the order of the day for the visit of Salford City to Roots Hall. The Ammies lost in midweek to League Two shock troops Morecambe, but rarely concede more than one in a game whilst possessing not only one of the strongest attacking lines in the league, but also a manager in Richie Wellens who always seeks to dominate possession. Still, the hosts have proven they’re capable of springing a surprise against more vaunted sides, and it might not be the walk in the park some pundits would have had this fixture down as prior to Wednesday.
