Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Alexandra Stadium when Crewe and Peterborough face each other in the League One round 12 on Saturday afternoon. The Railwaymen aim to build on the FA Cup win over Bolton, but given their three-game losing run in the League One, home win should not be considered. Crewe obviously suffered a dip in form, and, no doubt, they face an uphill task in the clash against the promotion-chasing side.
The Posh, on the other hand, recorded back-to-back wins over Shrewsbury (5-1) and Bristol Rovers (2-0) in the previous two league fixtures, with the team eliminating Oxford United in the FA Cup. The league leaders aim to retain top position in the standings, and we predict that they will take advantage of the Crewe Alexandra’s current form in the English third tier. A man to watch in the away team will be Siriki Dembele, who has been scoring goals for fun of late.
