Bournemouth vs Crawley Predictions


Crawley produced a huge upset against Leeds but will struggle to get more than 30% of the ball here. I am backing Bournemouth to cruise through this FA Cup tie with Joshua King to score.

  • Bournemouth have won by 3+ goals in 2 of their last 3 home matches (FA Cup).
  • Bournemouth’s Joshua King scored 2 goals in his last match (FA Cup).
  • Crawley lost 3-0 in their last away match against Bournemouth (League One).

Bournemouth and Crawley met twice in the 2012/13 League One season.

Crawley won 3-1 at home before a 3-0 defeat in Bournemouth.

Bournemouth sit 6th in the Championship as they seek a swift return to the Premier League. The south coast club won 1-0 at Stoke to start the new year.

Jason Tindall’s side won 4-1 at home against Oldham in the FA Cup. David Brooks opened the scoring, Rodrigo Riquelme made it 2-1 with Joshua King bagging a brace to wrap it up.

Bournemouth returned to Championship with a 1-1 draw against Millwall. The Cherries then lost 1-0 against Luton after Jefferson Lerma was sent off in the 26th minute.

Bournemouth’s last match was a 1-0 defeat at Derby. They had 62% possession but couldn’t find an equaliser in the second half.

Bournemouth centre back Chris Mepham and attacking midfielder Junior Stanislas are injured.

Youngsters including left back Jordan Zemura, midfielder Gavin Kilkenny and winger Rodrigo Riquelme could get another start in the FA Cup.

Joshua King should replace Dominic Solanke up front after scoring two goals in the FA Cup third round.

Crawley have climbed to 12th in League Two after going undefeated in their last eight league matches. They conceded in seven of them before a 1-0 win at Bolton.

John Yems’s side produced a huge upset in the FA Cup third round. 

The Reds won 3-0 at home against Leeds with Nick Tsaroulla, Ashley Nadesan and Jordan Tunnicliffe on target. Crawley did it despite having 29% possession and a 55% pass completion rate.

Crawley attacking midfielder Reece Grego-Cox hasn’t played this season. 

Top scorer Max Watters was sold to Cardiff after beating Leeds in the FA Cup. Much of the goalscoring responsibility will now fall on Tom Nichols.
