Preview: Crewe Hopeful Of Turning The Tables At The County Ground

21 April 2019

Crewe Alexandra travel to Swindon Town on Easter Monday looking to complete a Bank Holiday double after victory over Yeovil Town on Friday.

But it's the toughest of tests for Dave Artell's side with The County Ground traditionally not a happy hunting ground for Crewe sides.

The last time the Alex won in Wiltshire was in December 2002 & there have been eight games since then - including the last two seasons where Crewe have let 3-1 leads slip on both occasions to lose 4-3.

But records are made for breaking & Dave Artell will be confident his side can go to the Robins & make it three wins on the bounce after the Notts County & Glovers wins.

Date: Monday 22 April 2019

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: County Ground

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Swindon 4-3 Crewe (Jan 2018)

Referee: Lee Collins (P22, Y72, R2)

Crewe: Aaron Taylor-Sinclair could return from injury after missing the Good Friday match as a precaution, but it's still too soon for Harry Pickering.

Ben Garratt could return in goal, but Will Jaaskelainen may keep his place after impressing in the Yeovil victory.

Boss David Artell may shuffle his pack again with two games in four days over the Easter weekend.

 

Swindon: The Robins are still in the play-off hunt but their challenge has stalled somewhat in recent weeks with a run of four consecutive draws.

The Robins drew 0-0 at Cambridge United on Monday & don't have any fresh injury concerns or suspensions from that match.

Town are four points off the final play-off spot with three games remaining, so three points against the Alex is a must if they're going to keep their hopes alive.
