Match result prediction: Port Vale to win
Port Vale come into this game after four consecutive victories in League One and EFL Cup, including the EFL Cup’s fixture against Crewe Alexandra. Meanwhile, the Railwaymen have confirmed just one victory in the same course while ending two in draws. But Crewe have lost their last two successive games away from Mornflake Stadium. Adding more to this, Crewe Alexandra has tasted defeats in all of their last four games against Port Vale. Therefore, we back the Valiants to fancy their chances and collect three points in this game.

None of the recent four H2Hs between these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Port Vale have found the back of the net six times in their last four fixtures. But Crewe Alexandra have been even worse as they scored just three goals in the same duration. Additionally, the Valiants have also claimed three clean sheets in the last five matches in EFL Cup and League One. Considering these facts, we predict this game to finish with Under 2.5 Goals.
