Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Match Time & Date:
Cheltenham Town and Crewe Alexandra face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Whaddon Road in the second round of the FA Cup. Cheltenham sit in the second place in the League Two standings after 14 rounds, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure automatic promotion to League One. Since Michael Duff is likely to mix the squad against Crewe, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Portsmouth and Accrington in the League One. Crewe produced a fine display in a 3-2 win over Bolton in their FA Cup opener, and they are surely capable of beating the League Two side behind closed doors. In their last meeting in a competitive match Crewe Alexandra defeated Cheltenham Town 1-0, with Perry Ng scoring the only goal of the match.
