Exeter City vs Crewe Alexandra Match Prediction

By William Hall

Top of the league Exeter welcome mid-table Crewe Alexandra to St James' Park this weekend in a game that could make it five straight home wins for the home team. Exeter come into this game off the back of 2-1 away win against Barnet which made it three wins out of three for the side. Crew will go into the game with Exeter after losing 1-0 at home to Cambridge during the week. A reaction will be needed this weekend if they are going to get anywhere near their opponents. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These two sides have played each other just twice in the past with both sides getting the share of the wins. It has been the home team on both occasions to come out on top, and I really can't see anything different happening this weekend.

Exeter have seen over 2.5 goals go in during four of their last five matches and with Crewe's defensive problems growing, this could easily happen again this weekend. Crewe's away form up to now has been way below par, and with Exeter winning for fun at home, I can't see them getting close to the home team this weekend. However, in the seven games where they have won six times, they have managed to beat the -1 goal handicap just once, showing they are struggling to see off teams. In fact, all of the last three home games have ended 1-0 to the good.

Exeter City Preview

Exeter come into this game on some quite simply fantastic form with five wins from their last six in all competitions and six wins from seven when playing on home soil. Exeter come into this game off the back of an incredible comeback which would have filled them with confidence leading up to this weekend. Barnet took the lead just after half time and looked comfortable to take all three points. However, in the 78th minute, Exeter top scorer Reuben Reid got the equaliser thanks to a lovely ball from Jake Taylor. Deep into stoppage time, the game looked as if it was going to end a draw, but a 94th-minute strike from Jayden Stockley saw Exeter steal the three points, to Barnet's frustrations. When Exeter are playing at home, it is tough to bet any other way than a home win.

Exeter can take on Crewe with no concerns on injuries or suspensions.

Crewe Alexandra Preview

Crewe couldn't come into this game on a worse run, losing three of their last four games. Two games ago, it looked like the tables had turned or the side after thrashing Chesterfield 5-1 at home. However, a defeat to Cambridge United at home in the next put them back to losing ways which is not what they would have wanted as they travel to the league leaders this weekend. If you were to say one good thing about Crewe Alexandra at this stage, you would have to mention centre-forward Chris Porter who has managed to bang in five goals in just seven games so far this season. If Crewe are to get anything this weekend, he will have a huge part to play. The thing that Crewe need to try and resolve is the goals they concede. The side has managed just two clean sheets this season which is one of the worst in the league.
