Preview: Crewe Welcome Jolley's Grimsby To Gresty Road

26 October 2018

Crewe Alexandra welcome Grimsby Town to Gresty Road looking to continue their fine home form against The Mariners.

The Alex won 2-0 last season, and 5-0 the previous season, with the Alex also winning the previous three meetings in Crewe stretching back to 1999.

Crewe are buoyed after going three games unbeaten, but the Mariners are also in impereous form.

They've kept four clean sheets in their last four and won three of those games alongside a 0-0 draw with Exeter.

After a poor start to the campaign, the Mariners have now hit the right note & pose a very real threat on match day.
