  • Competition: England - League Two
  • Date: Saturday, 19th, November 2022
  • Kickoff: 15:00 UK/16.00 CET
  • Venue: Bescot Stadium (Walsall)

Ahead of us is an interesting clash between two teams that have shown visible improvement in form in recent weeks. Walsall and Crawley Town will measure their strength on Saturday.

Walsall play quite variable in this year's edition of League Two (the fourth tier of English football). We get the impression that we are watching a replay of this team from the previous campaign. The  club from West Midlands have achieved six wins, six draws and six defeats, which is the same picture as last season this term, where they had a record of 6-6-6 after 18 games played. However, they are now two places below, unlike last season's 13th position.

Meanwhile, Crawley Town are a long-standing member of the fourth tier of English football (League Two), more precisely since the 2014/15 campaign. They still can't find a plan to escape from this tier, and it gives the impression that they are quite good for this tier, but not strong enough for a higher rank. Their edition this year can be characterized as quite weak, considering that they managed to collect 17 points from as many games, which means that they are only four points behind the danger zone.

Walsall vs Crawley Town Betting Tips: BTTS

Since Walsall became a member of the fourth tier of English football (2018/19 campaign), the two teams have met seven times so far, and what is important for our bet is that five of those seven have ended with goals in both nets.

Walsall have improved their form significantly in recent weeks, especially on home turf. They have managed to win each of their previous four home games, so we believe that "The Saddlers" will be attacking-minded from the first minute.

What particularly pleases coach Michael Flynn is that his team have looked strong in defense of late, keeping clean sheet in each of their last three games. However, it should be borne in mind that this same team has only two "clean sheets" in 10 home games.

Crawley Town ended their black run (D2, L2) last weekend when they beat Barrow 1-0 at home. However, The Red Devils from West Sussex are playing disastrously on the road this season, and are still looking for their first triumph (0-5-4).

Crawley are playing ultra-offensively this season, but also their defense is as hollow as "Swiss cheese". Their games are very interesting to watch, bearing in mind that BTTS was the winning bet in 7 of the previous 8 matches of this team.

Walsall will be looking to continue their impressive home form, but they should not underestimate Crawley, who have a great attacking zone. Crawley are chasing their first away triumph, and we expect them to start with all their weapons from the first minute. Overall, we believe both teams have enough firepower in attack to score at least one goal.

27-year-old centre-forward Conor Wilkinson is long-absent with a serious knee injury and his return to the field is still unknown. He should be the only absentee in the home team, so no major changes are expected in the starting XI.
