3 huge reasons Crewe could be in with a shout of promotion next season



It could be argued that League Two is one of the most exciting divisions in the Football League.

The relegation spots might not be as dangerous as those in League One, there are two fewer for a start, but many of the teams have similar budgets and aspirations, meaning every season a new surprise package emerges.

Teams who come down form League One rarely storm the division, with the National League as likely to provide a top seven side as the third-tier.

That’s evident this season where MK Dons and Bury have found Tranmere and Forest Green formidable opponents, whilst clubs relegated in recent seasons such as Port Vale and Crewe have settled into a mid table position.

Crewe have been impressive and angering in equal measure. at Gresty Road they’ve been incredible, amassing a home record with more victories than that of champions Lincoln City. On their travels, they’re not as impressive and have therefore failed to make the top seven.

Next season could very well be the year they make an impression on League Two though. We examine three reasons why we’re tipping them for a top seven spot in 2019/20.

Home Form

If you’re going to be promoted, you either need to be incredible away or have a fortress at home.

Gresty Road has been turned into a fortress and the more successful they are, the busier it’ll get.

They can use bigger crowds to their advantage, helping to exploit their home form even more than this season.

Charlie Kirk

The 21-year-old came through the Crewe academy and is growing into a superb young footballer.

He’s made over 100 appearances already and will be hot property in the summer. If Crewe can keep him, he’ll be a big influence next season.

Improving away

With their home form being so good, it’s away from Gresty Road they’ve needed to be better.

That’s evident in recent weeks, they’ve only lost two in nine on their travels.

They’ve beaten play-off chasing Swindon and automatic hopefuls Mansfield recently too, showing marked improvement all round.
