Crewe host Oldham Athletic this weekend after an enforced break at the weekend due to non-involvement in the FA Cup Second Round.
The squad are well rested up & prepared after the week-and-a-half break, but are still in good spirits after defeating Cambridge United 2-0 in that contest last time out.
The Latics were in action at the weekend however, defeating Maidstone United 2-0 to set-up a third round trip to Premier League Fulham.
Date: Saturday 8 December 2018
Competition: Sky Bet League Two
Venue: Alexandra Stadium
Previous Meeting at Host Club: Crewe 0-1 Oldham (October 2017)
Referee: Brett Huxtable (P22, Y65, R3)
Crewe: The Alex have been handed a boost with the news that George Ray is back available after successfully completing 90 minutes for the Under 23s on Tuesday.
More positive news from the camp is that Paul Green has now returned to light training & could return to first team action before the turn of the year – but this game comes too early for him.
Crewe all looking to make it back-to-back wins, three wins in four & three home wins in a row. Whichever way you look at it, victory against the Latics will make for very positive reading on the form tables.
Oldham: Dan Gardner looks set to be missing for the visitors, but Jordan Lyden is set for a return.
Jose Baxter, Jonathan Benteke & Zeus De La Paz are long term absentees, whilst Ishmael Miller is suspended.
The Latics are currently in 13th in Sky Bet League Two, one point & two places above the Alex having gone four league games unbeaten (one win, three draws).
