Crewe Alexandra v Grimsby Town, Sky Bet League Two, Alexandra Stadium, Monday 1 January 2018, Kick-Off 3:00pm
Crewe kick-off 2018 with a New Years' Day clash with Grimsby Town at Gresty Road.
Dave Artell & his troops will be hoping the turn of the year brings an upturn in fortunes after a underwhelming start to the 2017/18 campaign.
Included in that came a 1-0 defeat to the Mariners at Blundell Park in September, but there are fonder memories of the last meeting in Crewe - a 5-0 victory in February.
Grimsby had won three on the bounce before Christmas, but they've drawn two & lost two over the Christmas period, including a 3-0 defeat to Accrington on Saturday.
With both teams playing just 48 hours after their previous fixtures, the match could be a test of stamina & endeavour to get the result.
