CRAWLEY V HARROGATE
Crawley Town will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-1 League Two triumph against Colchester United.
Matches featuring Crawley Town have tended to be absorbing ones of late with high scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past six clashes alone, the sum of 21 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 7 of these coming from Crawley Town. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this game, of course.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Port Vale in League Two action, Harrogate Town will be aiming to make amends here.
David Worrall (27') and James Wilson (47') scored for Port Vale.
The stats tell the story, and Harrogate Town have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals in total. Defensively, Harrogate Town have clearly had some problems.
Going into this contest, Harrogate Town are without a win away from home in their last 6 matches in the league.
Prediction: Both teams to score
PORTSMOUTH V PLYMOUTH
Portsmouth will be hoping to bounce back here following the 1-2 League One loss in their previous game against Cambridge United.

Over their prior six fixtures, Danny Cowley's Portsmouth have scored 5 times resulting in an average number of goals per match equal to 0.83.
Plymouth Argyle will go into this encounter following on from a 0-1 League One win in the defeat of AFC Wimbledon in their previous match.
The only player to score from Plymouth Argyle was Ryan Hardie (47').
In the course of their 6 previous matches, Ryan Lowe's Plymouth Argyle have found the back of the net 9 times, giving them a goals per game average of 1.5.
Ahead of this meeting, Plymouth Argyle are winless against Portsmouth when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. Not the best of away records.
Prediction: Both teams to score
