Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Rochdale will be aiming to bounce back from a heavy 4-1 loss to Gillingham when they host Crewe Alexandra at their Spotland Stadium on Matchday 21. The Dale have been having their ups and downs of late, but one thing is for sure, they struggle at the back. Brian Barry-Murphy’s troops are after their second home win of the season, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the bottom-table side.
The Railwaymen, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations on their return to the League One, with the team sitting in ninth position in the table, only two points behind the playoffs berth. Crewe are more of a team than Rochdale, and we predict that the visitors are going to take advantage of the Dale’s shaky defence. You should bear in mind that the Railwaymen are after their fourth away triumph of the season.
