Crewe Alexandra will aim to leapfrog visitors Notts County when they meet at Mornflake Stadium today (Saturday, 3pm).
Lee Bell’s side has been impacted with several injuries over the past few weeks but will take confidence after earning an FA Cup replay against League One side Derby County last time out.
They start the game just one point behind the second-placed Magpies, with a place in the automatic promotion spots a possibility if they take all three points.
Notts County sit second in Sky Bet League Two after retaining their momentum from a superb promotion last term.
The oldest club in the world are targeting back-to-back promotions and look well-placed to be right in the shake-up at the end of April.
Former non-league player Luke Williams took charge of Notts County in summer 2022. He started his management career at Swindon Town, and has coached at Bristol City, MK Dons and Swansea.
Ryan Dicker (Crewe Assistant): "They have good players in attacking areas and we have to defend our box well and then make sure out football creates opportunities at the other end of the pitch.”
Luke Williams: “We’re going to be in for a really tough game and we know they’re going to pose us a lot of problems.”
The two sides have met 47 times. Notts County have won on 23 occasions while The Railwaymen have emerged victorious 15 times.
The last meeting ended in a 3-0 win for Crewe in 2019, thanks to goals from Aaron Taylor-Sinclair, Ryan Wintle and James Jones.
The referee for this clash is Simon Mather, and he will be assisted by Darren Wilding and Danny Gratton. The fourth official is Richard Wigglesworth.
