Team News: Crewe Alexandra
Owing to a completely healthy group available to select from, Crewe Alexandra boss Dave Artell has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this game.
We’re inclined to think that Crewe Alexandra could well find it tough to put one past this Hull City outfit who we think will score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore tipping a good battle with a 1-0 winning margin for Hull City at the end of the 90 minutes.
There should be little in it.
