Preview: Crewe Face Mansfield In Re-Arranged Fixture

30 October 2018

Crewe Alexandra and Mansfield Town lock horns at Gresty Road in the re-arranged match-up after September's orginal clash was postponed due to international call-ups.

There are no further games in League Two this evening, with Crewe able to move up from 17th to 11th with a win, and the Stags able to move from 11th to 9th if they come out on top.

The game in hand presents both sides with an opportunity to gain an added boost in League Two.

The Alex have won three of the last six & are four unbeaten, whilst Mansfield have only lost once in the league all season - but they have drawn nine of their 14 games.

 

Date: Tuesday 30 October 2018

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting At Host Club: Crewe 2-2 Mansfield (August 2017)

Referee: Chris Sarginson (P12, 34Y, 0R)

 

Crewe: Perry Ng is in contention to return after serving his one-game suspension on Saturday, but Nicky Hunt could keep his place after helping to keep a clean sheet on Saturday.

Eddie Nolan could also come into the reckoning having recovered from injury.

Oli Finney scored two fantastic goals for the Under 23s on Monday & is also pushing for more first team game-time.

Crewe could move up SIX places and into 11th with a win, with no other League Two matches taking place tonight.

 

Mansfield: 

Midfielder Alex MacDonald and defender David Mirfin will miss the match as they continue their recoveries from knee injuries. The game will also come too soon for wing-back Hayden White.

Defender Ryan Sweeney is suspended for the match after picking up his fifth booking of the season against MK Dons.

The Stags, who are currently 11th in the league, can move up to 9th with a victory.
