Preview: Crewe All-Set To Face League Leaders Lincoln

5 October 2018

Lincoln City host Crewe Alexandra this weekend, with the Alex aiming to record back-to-back wins in League Two for the first time this season after Tuesday's victory over Swindon.

The Alex have happy memories of Sincil Bank from last season, coming from 1-0 down to win 4-1 in front of a raucous home crowd.

Back then, Lincoln were chasing a play-off spot. This season, they're currently going even better & sit at the summit of League Two.

Please note, away match tickets had to be bought in advance from the Crewe Alex ticket office. There are no sales on the day at Lincoln.


Date: Saturday 6 October 2018

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Sincil Bank

Previous Meeting At Host Club: Lincoln City 1-4 Crewe (February 2018)

Referee: Paul Marsden (P8 18Y 2R)


Crewe: Crewe are sweating on the fitness of Perry Ng after he rolled his anke in the run-up to Tuesday night's win over Swindon. He'll face a late fitness test, but Nicky Hunt or Michael Raynes wil be on hand to deputise.

Harry Pickering could return to the side ahead recovering from his hamstring problem ahead of schedule, but Eddie Nolan continues to be absent.

Confidence is high in the Crewe camp after a timely win & clean sheet in midweek & the result at Sincil Bank last season & Dave Artell has said his troops will go into the game with nothing to fear.


Lincoln City: Josh Vickers is back fit after a spell on the sidelines and could return in goal.

The Imps top League Two by two points despite losing 1-0 at Tranmere on Tuesday night. That was just their second league defeat of the season - the other coming at home to Crawley Town.

Other than that blip, the Imps have been on imperious form so far this season, winning eight of their 11 League Two games.
