Preview: Alex Hope To Make It A Christmas Double Against Stevenage

28 December 2018

Stevenage FC come to the Alexandra Stadium for Crewe's final game of 2018.

The Alex are looking to end the calendar year on a high with back-to-back win having defeated League Two table-toppers Lincoln City on Boxing Day.

Stevenage too won on Boxing Day against a high-flying side. The went to Colchester United's Jobserve Stadium & ran out 2-1 winners over the top-four side.

Crewe won the reverse fixture at Boro in October 1-0 - the only away win of the season so far - thanks to a superb Jordan Bowery League Two Goal of the Month nominee.

 

Date: Saturday 29 December 2018

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Crewe 1-0 Stevenage (Oct 2017)

Referee: Anthony Backhouse (P23, Y64, R2)

 

Crewe: A fully fit squad is available to David Artell for the second straight game after no injury concerns picked up in the Boxing Day victory over Lincoln.

Paul Green was withdrawn late on in the win as a precaution after impressing in his first start since suffering a knee problem in August.

The Alex will be desperate to record back-to-back win having struggled to build momentum with a run of results yet this season.

 

Stevenage: Boro come into the game on a high, having won away at Colchester on Boxing Day - their first win on the road for over two months.

Prior to that victory, Stevenage had won only one of their last seven Sky Bet League Two games & they currently sit in tenth place in the table - seven places & seven points better off than the Alex.

Crewe have won the last two meetings 1-0, with a hat-trick on 1-0 victories sure to be most welcome come the final whistle!
