Top Bets and Predictions for Crewe vs Barrow

Barrow will look to add a third straight win to move them further into contention for a top-seven finish in League Two against a team whose season has been virtually decided.

Under 2.5 Goals

These are not the teams that score a lot of goals, and it is widely expected for this Crewe vs Barrow prediction that this will be a low-scoring match. Both teams had three matches from their past five with fewer than three goals scored in a game, while looking at the season overall, Crewe has played 23 ‘under' matches while Barrow's number is at 25. Their season average, when it comes to goals scored during their matches is the same at 2.2 goals per game. History recognizes only two games between these sides in the past, the first meeting of this season was decided by a 3-0 result in favor of Barrow while the other encounter was played in 2018 when Barrow won by a single goal. That was a friendly match.

Draw

Barrow is not a prolific away team in any sense, but their record looks decent on paper. They won six matches away from home with four draws and nine losses while their goal difference should be a lot better standing at 17-27. Crewe is in a similar situation when playing at home earning seven victories and six losses as well as defeats. However, Crewe is unbeaten in their last three games played in front of their fans so there is hope that things make work out for the hosts.

Crewe vs Barrow Lineups, Team Information, and Preview

Crewe

With a win last week over Doncaster, Crewe put at ease some of the struggles they had lately and those transpired with three straight losses. Crewe is in the lower part of the League Two rankings but with a decent advantage over the teams that are in the relegation zone. There is not much to do before the season's end but to try and avoid additional problems regarding that goal. The health of the team is in good shape at the moment.

Possible lineup: Beadle, Mellor, O'Riodan, Offord, Adebisi, Brook, Tabiner, Thomas, Agyei, Ainley, Baker-Richardson.

Barrow

The visiting team's ambitions are far greater than their opponent's. Barrow had two wins in a row in the past couple of rounds and they are five points away from a top-seven finish with seven more matches to go before the season shuts down for good. Barrow has had trouble in balancing the defense-attack line with the defending part of the game a tough issue for the guest side. Coach Pete Wild should have his full team available.

Possible lineup: Farman, Brough, Canavan, Ray, McClelland, Warren, White, Neal, Foley, Kay, Gordon.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Josh Gordon

The best attacking option that Barrow has at its disposal, Josh Gordon has contributed to the team's run toward a top seven of League Two with 12 goals which are a team-high, and has a single assist on the record as well. He made 31 appearances this season.
