It has been an underwhelming start from Crewe who have collected back to back draws in their start to League Two. Those games were both at home as well, so this will be their third home fixture on the bounce so far, so really they would have hoped for more from such an advantage to start off with. As for the Bees, they have collected four points from their opening two games of the season. So they will be certainly looking for something from this one, but they have suffered some heavy defeats out at the Alexandra Stadium in recent times including a heavy 4-1 defeat on their trip there last season. That having been said William Hill have Barnet at 6/4 to take the win in this one, with Crewe at a 17/10 price. This should be a very interesting fixture.
Crewe were nothing more than average on home soil in League Two last season with a W8 D7 L8 record. They will have been a bit disappointed with only two draws in two home games to start with and that will be a worry because you know you are going to have more troubles out on the road and there are warning signs if you can’t win at home. They have Chris Porter who has two goals to his name this season and Chris Dagnall who got their equaliser against Newport last weekend, both at good 7/4 value in the anytime goalscorer market. Can someone deliver a winning touch for the Railwaymen?
A good start from Barnet though and they took a 2-2 draw out at Forest Green and then turned around to beat Luton last weekend. That was a big win for Barnet in terms of confidence because Luton had gone out and put eight goals past Yeovil just a week earlier. So for Barnet to shut them down and take a 1-0 win over the Hatters says a lot about their grit. The Bees posted a W8 D6 L9 record away from home last season and they have won just one of their last seven away from home in the division.
Head to Head News
Crewe have some serious home form going against Barnet and that probably can’t be ignored in this one. They have won their last three on the bounce at the Alexandra Stadium against them and they have gone unbeaten in a W5 D1 record at home from their previous six fixtures against the Bees. They have scored 14 goals in their last three home games against Barnet as well. Overall the head to head record between the two stands in favour of Crewe with a W7 D2 L3 record.
