Crewe Alexandra Preview – Can the Railwaymen seal maximum points on home turf?

Crewe Alexandra have had an indifferent start to their League One season so far. After three games, David Artell’s troops have taken three points from a possible nine. The Railwaymen started their league campaign with losses to Charlton Athletic and Hull City, who were both relegated from the EFL Championship last season.

However, two weeks ago, Crewe picked up their first league victory since beating Stevenage 3-1 in an EFL League Two fixture on March 7th. Mikael Mandron and Oliver Finney netted in a 2-0 home win over MK Dons. Crewe also beat Newcastle United’s U21 side in the Football League Trophy last week.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1016 GMT, Friday 9 October)

Despite the league season being cut short, Crewe were promoted from the fourth tier last term. Alex finished second in League Two, racking up 69 points in the process. Staying in League One will be the club’s main aim this season. Can they secure a second successive league victory this weekend?

Wigan Athletic Preview – Latics to make it three victories on the bounce?

Wigan Athletic were relegated from the Championship last season after a points deduction. Paul Cook’s men had an excellent campaign on the field, but a 12-point penalty ultimately cost them their place in the second tier.

After a change of manager and wholesale changes to the playing staff, Wigan started their League One season with defeats to Ipswich Town and Gillingham. However, Athletic have got their act together since, securing wins over Portsmouth and Doncaster Rovers.
