Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Alexandra Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Crewe Alexandra and Lincoln City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 8. Lincoln are leading the chase for automatic promotion to the Championship, and they are eyeing their third consecutive win in the league. The Imps did well to beat Ipswich Town in the League One derby at the weekend, and, no doubt, the visitors are high on spirits ahead of the midweek clash.
Crewe, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs on their return to the League One, with the team sitting in the middle of the table ahead of the visit of Lincoln City. The newcomers aim to build on a 2-1 win over Doncaster, but beating the league leaders is easier said than done. Lincoln seem to be more of a team than Crewe, and we predict that the visitors will take advantage of the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors.
