So, our FIFA 20 Verdict isn’t always right – or should that be ‘ever’ right? But we might as well put our trip to Crawley to the virtual test. You never know. It may just come up with the right result one day. And then who’ll be laughing? Exactly – no-one. If anything, it’s a quick escape from our real-life woes. And keeps us from doing the dishes in the name of public service. Now then, let’s see if the knowledge is at our fingertips this time round.
FIFA 20 Verdict: Crawley Town v Boro’
(Can’t see the video? Go to YouTube instead)
Our starting XI has chopped and changed so much in recent weeks that we don’t know if we’re coming or going. In trying to piece this one together, we’ve gone with two theories – one is that Revs won’t look to change much from last week. But the other is that we’ll see chief Revs make his mark on the side. Oh, and Patrick Reading isn’t on the game for us to pick. Do bear that in mind when you see Tyler Denton at left back instead of him.
Crawley Town – 1 (Ferguson 28)
Stevenage – 0
Farman — James-Wildin, Digby, Soares, Denton — Leesley, Carter, Dabo, Lakin, Kemp — Cassidy
Bastien, Carroll, TVC, Parrett (Soares 86), Nugent, List (Leesley 75), Parkhouse (Lakin 78)
What odds on fiction becoming fact?
For this one to end 1-0 as the FIFA 20 Verdict suggests, the correct score market could give you 7/1 if you look in the right place. Crawley/Crawley with the Half Time/Full Time market has been seen at 5/2 (Coral), but prices are obviously subject to change. And if Nathan Ferguson does turn out to be the match-winner, 11/1 (BetFred) is attractive. Not, of course, if you want a Boro’ win – in which case this is all redundant.
Now, our fun stopped as soon as the final whistle went here. If you’re having a punt and the fun stops, so should you.
