Crewe Alexandra will go in search of their first away win of the season when they travel to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday (3pm).
Lee Bell’s men won their last league game against the former league leaders MK Dons and will carry that confidence into the clash at The New Lawn.
Forest Green have picked up two wins from their first six games, and lie 18th in League Two.
They have remained unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions. They defeated Sutton United away from home in their last league game and then kicked off their Papa John’s trophy campaign in style with a 3-0 success against Shrewsbury in midweek.
David Horseman took over in the summer from Caretaker Manager Hannah Dingley after the team’s relegation to League Two last season.
Horseman has previously coached at Watford, Bristol City and Southampton.
Ryan Dicker (Alex Assistant Manager): “They’ve got some good players; they can do a bit of everything. We have to focus on what we can do to get success out of the game and hopefully get a positive result.”
David Horseman: “It'll be completely different to the last couple of weeks, but a good challenge. The boys have got a bit of a challenge to make sure we get a good result on the weekend.”
There have only ever been five encounters between the two sides, with each winning two and the other game being a draw.
A memorable clash was in 2018-19 when Charlie Kirk's last-minute strike sealed a 3-2 win for The Railwaymen.
The referee for the match is Thomas Parsons. His assistants will be Steven Plane and Colin Farrell. The fourth official for the game will be Ravel Cheosiaua.
