Preview: Swindon At Gresty Road Under The Lights

2 October 2018

Swindon Town come to Gresty Road for the first taste of League Two midweek football on Crewe Alexandra home soil in the 2018/19 season.

The Robins won both meetings between the sides last season and indeed the two previous to that.

Crewe are desperate to arrest a run of three straight defeats within the space of a week, whilst Swindon are looking to build on their last away game - a 3-0 success at Yeovil Town.


Date: Tuesday 2 October 2018

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting At Host Club: Crewe 0-3 Swindon (December 2017)

Referee: Ben Toner (P6, 8Y, 0R)


Crewe: Assistant Manager Kenny Lunt confirmed that Crewe have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match-up - but the game has come too soon for the recovering Harry Pickering. Eddie Nolan & Paul Green continue to be absent.

Crewe have a rotten record against the Robbins, not winning any of the nine previous meetings. But Dave Artell & his troops will be hoping tonight's fixture is lucky number ten.


Swindon Town: The Robins have kept four clean sheets in their last five games after a 0-0 draw at home to Oldham on Saturday & they are also unbeaten in four away games.

It is not thought that Swindon have any fresh injury concerns after the weekend's games, with Phil Brown's side full of confidence at present.
