AFC Wimbledon vs Crawley Town: Top Free Betting Tips

Round 2 of the EFL Trophy group stage brings AFC Wimbledon and Crawley Town at Plough Lane. Both sides were humbled in their recent League Two outings and will want a better result in the cup competition.

Crawley Town to Win

Despite their home advantage, it is difficult to rule in favour of AFC Wimbledon. The hosts have suffered three defeats in succession. Crawley Town also tasted a loss in their last outing but prior to that had gone five matches unbeaten. They also earned the plaudits on their last trip to Plough Lane and should manage enough to get the three points on offer.

Over 2.5 Goals

With the exception of their 1-0 defeat to Crewe Alexandria,  Crawley Town's prior three matches had concluded with Over 2.5 Goals results. They scored eight goals in this period and will be looking to take the game to their rivals. The last cup meeting between these sides also saw three goals and we expect to see a similar result in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

While Crawley has managed to score effortlessly, the same cannot be said about their defensive prowess. Their eight goals scored are complimented by a disappointing seven goals conceded. The Dons will like these statistics as they look to get over their own scoring woes. Moreover, the hosts have a good scoring record against the Reds, scoring four goals in their last three meetings.

AFC Wimbledon vs Crawley Town: Team News and Match Preview

AFC Wimbledon

One match after the other has been a disappointment for AFC Wimbledon fans. The Dons have gone from one loss from their opening four outings to four in the proceeding five. They need to arrest their decline or it will be a long season for them at the receiving end of punishment. The EFL Trophy represents a good avenue for them to get back to winning ways but they need to translate this form to their league outings.

Crawley Town

Unlike Wimbledon, Crawley Town has only won once in their League Two adventures. Their win in the EFL Trophy also came in extra time after 2-2 draw by Portsmouth during the 90 minutes of regulation time. While the Dons have struggled to score goals, Crawley's stem from their defence, which is conceding far too many goals at regular intervals. The increased output from the attackers has helped them earn stalemates but it will not prove to be enough for their season adventures.
