Blackburn Replay: Preview & Ways To Follow The Game

13 December 2017

Unable to make it to our FA Cup replay against Blackburn? The Alex have you covered…


Crewe Alexandra vs Blackburn Rovers

Emirates FA Cup Second Round Replay

Alexandra Stadium

Wednesday 13 December, 2017

Kick-Off 7:45pm


Crewe & Blackburn do it all over again under the floodlights at Gresty Road after playing out a gripping 3-3 draw in the original tie at Ewood Park.

Rovers took a commanding 3-0 lead inside 20 minutes, but after having two men sent off, Crewe battled back to earn the credible draw to set-up the replay.

The winner of the contest will take on Hull City at home in the third round in January, but Blackburn haven't gone out any earlier than the third round in 45 years - the last side to beat them this early in the competition? Crewe Alexandra of course!

The best way to take in the game is obviously in person at the stadium (tickets available at up until kick-off, click here for more info) but if you can't make it, then take in the information below for different ways to follow the action!
