Bitesize Prediction: Sutton vs Crawley – 07/03/23

Competition: League Two

Market: Sutton win

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to make up some ground in the play-off chase on Tuesday night, Sutton will welcome Crawley to Gander Green Lane.

Starting with the hosts, while Sutton might have been disappointed to have only collected a 1-1 draw at home against Crewe over the weekend, Matt Gray’s men should find the mood in their camp at a continued high. With their sights firmly set on securing a play-off spot in 2023, the U’s are enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run and will be looking to make another statement on Tuesday night. Likewise, suffering just a single defeat in any of their last 13 straight matchups across all formats – a run that stems all the way back to December 17th – Sutton have also gained a reputation for their rugged displays at the back. Shipping just a single strike in almost 300 minutes of action, it should also be highlighted that Gray’s side have not lost a single showdown at Gander Green Lane since the start of November. Sat within touching distance of breaking into the play-off spots, Sutton are rightfully tipped as a standout pick.

As for the visitors, last seen over the weekend putting in another toothless display on home soil as they slumped to a 1-0 loss at the hands of Northampton, Crawley are firmly at the heart of a League Two nightmare. Tipped as a standout pick to lose their Football League status in 2023, the Reds find themselves sat three points adrift of safety and will know that they face another huge challenge on Tuesday night. In fact, along with losing each of their last five straight appearances by an aggregate score of 10-3, Scott Lindsey’s men have put just a single point on the board since back on January 28th. With their nightmare run underlined by a 5-2 drumming at the hands of Carlisle last month, Crawley should also be worried by their most recent meeting against the play-off contenders. Suffering a 2-1 loss when they welcomed Sutton to Sussex on Boxing Day, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
