Matchday Guide | Salford (H)

10 March 2023

Crewe Alexandra take on Salford City under the lights Friday night, as they look to extend their unbeaten run to seven games.

Lee Bell’s side will be disappointed with the outcome of last Saturday fixture, as they conceded a late equaliser to Sutton United, though the gaffer will take many positives from the performance.

The Opposition

Salford currently occupy the final spot in the Play-Off places, sitting on 56 points having played 35 games, two more than eighth-placed Mansfield Town who have two games in hand.

The Greater Manchester side are on a good mini-run, winning two of their last three encounters, including a 3-1 win last time out against strugglers Newport County.

The Gaffer

Neil Wood took over the reins at the Peninsula Stadium in May 2022, having spent three years as Manchester United’s U23 manager.

A graduate of United’s famous academy, Wood took up coaching at a young age and developed many players through the United ranks, with 17 academy players making their first team debut under Wood.

Fighting Talk

Kenny Lunt (Player Development Manager): “They are one of the better footballing sides in the league. It was a really good game of football when we visited them, with nothing in it, until we had Bass sent off. Salford are always there or thereabouts in the table, they are able to mix it up and they have good, experienced players.”

Stevie Mallan (Salford midfielder): “The team’s been doing very well and it’s going to be hard to come into a team like this, they’ve been flying this season and doing very well.”

Team News

Crewe will be without defender Rod McDonald for Friday’s encounter as he’ll start his ban after being sent off against Sutton. David Amoo, Zac Williams and Christopher Long remain sidelined.

The Ammies expect to be without Conor McAleny, Richard Nartey, Ash Eastham, Ryan Watson, Jack Jenkins and Liam Shepard for the trip to Mornflake Stadium.


Salford currently hold the upper hand in past meetings, winning two of the three encounters between both sides, including last time out when the Ammies won 3-0 earlier on this season.

The Alex’s last victory against Salford came in September 2019, a 4-1 victory in the club’s promotion season.


Benjamin Speedie will take charge of the fixture on Friday night, having last officiated the Alex in January 2022, a 2-0 home defeat to Rotherham United.

Matthew Parry and Chris Isherwood have been appointed as assistant referees, with Gary Hilton acting as fourth official.

Match Reports

Match Report | Crewe 4 Salford 3

10 March 2023

  • Railwaymen secure stunning fightback win
  • Tabiner opens account with wonder goal
  • Agyei moves to 12 for campaign with brace

Crewe Alexandra grabbed all three points in dramatic style with two goals in the dying stages of a pulsating game against Salford City.

Dan Agyei fired the winner, and his second of the game, in the 90th minute to spark rapturous scenes at Mornflake Stadium.

Connor O’Riordan’s clever backheel had made it 3-3 just two minutes earlier, after Salford thought they had won it with Stevie Mallan’s 85th minute goal.

Earlier, the first half ended 2-2. Salford hit the front through Louis Barry, but Crewe led thanks to Agyei’s penalty and Joel Tabiner’s magnificent chip. Callum Hendry made it level just before the whistle.

The victory is Crewe’s first in five, but Lee Bell’s side are now seven games unbeaten, and up to 16th in League Two.

Bell made two changes to the side that drew at Sutton at the weekend. One was enforced, with the suspended Rod McDonald replaced by O’Riordan, who has completed a one-match ban.

The other change saw Callum Ainley replace Sean Robertson, as the Manager shifted to a 4-3-2-1 system, with Elliott Nevitt leading the line.

The visitors hit the front on 19 minutes when Luke Bolton showed searing pace to race down the right and he squared to give Barry a simple tap-in.

Rio Adebisi was desperately close to levelling shortly after, when he met Tariq Uwakwe’s corner with a firm header. But keeper Alex Cairns pulled off a superb save, and tipped the ball against the post.

It was 1-1 on the half-hour mark after Nevitt was fouled in the box as he arrived to collect an Uwakwe cross. Cool and calm, Agyei was spot on from 12 yards.

The Alex went ahead on 40 minutes when Tabiner was presented with the ball by keeper Cairns, who had raced out of his box, and the Crewe teenager sent a sensational chip home from fully 30 yards.

But it was all-square at the break after Bolton smashed the frame of the goal from close range, and Hendry reacted quickest to acrobatically convert when the ball came back into the box.

Keeper James Beadle made a smart stop down at his near post to deny Bolton soon after the restart.

Tabiner was inches away on 54 minutes after good persistence from Nevitt helped him get through on goal, but his effort was just the wrong side of the post.

Uwakwe headed over from a Tabiner cross, Ainley drew a comfortable save from Cairns, and Rio Adebisi went close, as the Alex pressed for their third.

As the game approached the final 10 minutes, two superb bits of defending from Kelvin Mellor kept Salford at bay, and then a full-stretch Beadle clawed away a Bolton volley.

Mallan’s powerful strike from a free-kick was bravely gathered by Beadle at the second attempt on 82 minutes.

On 85 minutes it was 3-2 to the visitors when Mallan found the bottom corner from just inside the box.

But the Alex responded well and it was 3-3 on 88 minutes when O’Riordan showed great presence of mind to backheel home after a scramble in the box.

And the stadium erupted when Nevitt’s incredibly powerful strike cannoned off the keeper and Agyei kept his cool to control and hit the winner.

Crewe (4-2-3-1): Beadle; Mellor, O’Riordan, Offord; Adebisi, Uwakwe (Baker-Richardson, 87), Finnigan; Tabiner (Thomas, 87), Ainley (Colkett, 76), Agyei; Nevitt.
