Colchester: Preview & Ways To Follow The Game...

27 October 2017

Unable to make it to Essex this weekend? The Alex have you covered…


Colchester United vs Crewe Alexandra

Sky Bet League Two

Weston Homes Community Stadium

Saturday 28 October, 2017

Kick-Off 3:00pm


Colchester is normally a happy hunting ground for Crewe Alex. Taking out last season's defeat at The Weston Homes Community Stadium, The Railwaymen were actually on a run of seven wins in a row in Essex, stretching way back to 1993.

That record came to an end with last year's 4-0 defeat, but Dave Artell will be hoping the results in Colchester go 'back to type' this weekend as his side look to recover from five away defeats on the bounce.

Crewe currently sit two points behind the U's in the Sky Bet League Two table, with victory set to propel The Alex above their oppoenents & into mid-table.

The best way to take in the game is obviously in person at the stadium (tickets available at Colchester on the day, 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!
