Emirates FA Cup Second Round

Ewood Park

Sunday 3 December, 2017

Kick-Off 2:00pm


Crewe Alexandra travel to Blackburn looking to cause another FA Cup upset after knocking out League One side Rotherham United in the First Round.

The magic of the cup was in full flow at Gresty Road on that occassion, with Callum Ainley popping up in the last minute to fire Crewe to a 2-1 victory.

Rovers progressed with a 3-1 home victory over Barnet, having been 1-0 down to the Bees at half-time.

The Club's last met as recent as last season, Rovers eventually defeating Crewe 4-3 at Ewood Park after Extra Time in the Second Round of the Carabao Cup.
