Matchday Guide | Walsall (H)

15 April 2023

Crewe Alexandra host Walsall on Saturday afternoon as we approach the final stages of the 2022-23 season (3pm).

Lee Bell’s side will look to get back to winning ways having suffered a 4-0 defeat on Easter Monday against Colchester, though The Railwaymen won their two matches prior to that.

The Opposition

Walsall sit 13th in League Two on 51 points with five games to go, after a stop-start season in their fourth season in the fourth division.

The West Midlands side have endured a poor run in recent times, winless in their last five, including a 0-0 stalemate last time out against promotion-chasers Carlisle United.

The Gaffer

Michael Flynn took over the Saddlers in February 2022. A Newport County legend, he nearly guided the South Walians into League One twice, losing both the 2019 and 2021 play-off final to Tranmere Rovers and Morecambe respectively.

Fighting Talk

Callum Ainley: “Every game is important, no players want to be losing any game, we know if we win one game and the teams around us lose we’re in the top half and that’s our incentive.”

Michael Flynn: “Crewe are a team that can lose 4-0 but can also win 3-0 or 4-0, which they have done recently, so it’s going to be a tough game. Whoever turns up on the day, will come away with the points.

Team News

Crewe Alexandra will assess the fitness of Connor O’Riordan, who was forced off early in first half of the match against Colchester United on Monday. Tariq Uwakwe will also be assessed, but Ryan Finnigan and Zac Williams remain out.

Walsall will wait to see if Donervon Daniels and Jack Earing will be fit to face the Alex.


Walsall have the better record in this fixture, winning 31 of the 75 past meetings to the Alex’s 24 victories. Earlier this season, the sides shared a stalemate at Poundland Stadium.


Carl Boyeson will take charge of proceedings, having last officiated Crewe three months ago, a 1-1 draw at Mansfield Town. He will be assisted by Simon Shaw and Steve Durnall, with Richard Bartlett acting as fourth official.

Match Report | Crewe 2 Walsall 0

15 April 2023

  • Railwaymen make it three straight home wins
  • Goals from McDonald and Long do damage
  • The Alex move to 51 points in League Two

Crewe Alexandra made it three home wins on the spin with a 2-0 success at the expense of Walsall.

First-half goals from Rod McDonald and Christopher Long proved enough for all three points in a commanding performance.

Joss Labadie saw red just after the hour-mark to make Walsall’s task even more difficult, and they could not find a way back.

The victory makes it five games unbeaten at Mornflake Stadium, and put 16th-placed Crewe on 51 points.

Lee Bell made six changes to the side that lost at Colchester. Two were enforced, with keeper James Beadle (ankle) and defender Connor O’Riordan (ankle) picking up injuries. They were replaced by Dave Richards and McDonald respectively.

Charlie Finney, recalled from his loan at Chorley, was handed his full debut in place of Rio Adebisi at left back, while Long made his first start of the season in attack.

Elliott Nevitt and Kelvin Mellor were recalled, while Sean Robertson, Lachlan Brook and Courtney Baker-Richardson dropped to the bench.

Walsall, who were without former Crewe man Donervon Daniels due to injury, were picking the ball out of the net inside three minutes.

Callum Ainley’s free-kick was perfectly delivered for McDonald to plant a header past the helpless keeper Owen Evans.

Connor Wilkinson nodded an Isaac Hutchinson cross-shot just wide as the visitors looked to respond.

But it was 2-0 on 26 minutes when Long burst into the box from the left, wriggled between a couple of defenders and found the bottom corner with a cool finish.

Saddlers boss Michael Flynn made two changes straight away, withdrawing skipper Liam Kinsella and defender Joe Low, as he switched to a back four.

Dan Agyei was inches away with a curling effort from range, and Finney saw a dipping volley deflected just over, as Crewe pressed for more.

Luke Offord made an important block from a Jamille Matt strike, to protect the clean sheet into the interval.

Mellor almost flicked home a Joel Tabiner corner, before sub Labadie was dismissed for receiving a second yellow card just after the hour.

Tabiner looped a close-range effort just over after good work down the left by Agyei, but chances were few and far between at either end.

Tom Knowles came close to pulling one back for the visitors when he burst through the middle with great pace but then dragged his shot wide.

Lachlan Brook’s strike was pushed round the post by Evans during a late break, and Agyei blazed wide in injury time.

Crewe (4-3-3): Richards; Mellor (Robertson, 72), McDonald, Offord, Finney (Colkett, 73); Thomas, Ainley (Uwakwe, 54), Tabiner; Nevitt (Baker-Richardson, 72), Agyei, Long (Brook, 49).

Subs not used: Booth, Amoo.

Booked: Mellor, McDonald.

Walsall (3-5-2): Evans; Lowe (Labadie, 27), Monthe, McEntee; Gordon, Kinsella (Riley, 27), Knowles, Comley, Hutchinson (Maddox, 65); Matt (Maher, 87), Wilkinson.

Subs not used: Smith, Williams, Stevens.

Booked: Labadie, Knowles, McEntee.

Sent off: Labadie.

Referee: C Boyeson.
