Preview: Crewe Look To Heap More Misery On Notts County

12 April 2019

Crewe Alexandra are set to take on Notts County & heap more misery on the side currently sitting at the foot of the English Football League.

The Alex are safely in the comfort of mid-table with no relegation worries with play-off ambitions also extinguished with back-to-back defeats.

Despite being bottom of Sky Bet League Two, County are just two points away from climbing up two spots & out of the reglation zone with Macclesfield & Yeovil - who Crewe face next on Good Friday - the other sides locked in the battle for survival.

All the pressure is on the Magpies at Gresty Road on Saturday, with Crewe traditionally often playing some of their best football in pressure-free situtations.

The visitors are set to bring a big following to Crewe in their hunt for survival, so come along yourself & help cheer the Alex on to three points.

 

Date: Saturday 13 April 2019

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Crewe 2-0 Notts County (Oct 2017)

Referee: Matthew Donohue (P34, Y127, R7)

 

 

Crewe: George Ray is available again after serving his one-match suspension at Port Vale last weekend. Harry Pickering is the only player confirmed as absent through injury.

Lewis Reilly & Billy Sass-Davies have been recalled from their loans at Curzon Ashton & Altrincham & could be a number of young/fringe players to be given their chance in the final five games with no promotion or relegation to play for.

 

Notts County: Goalkeeper Ryan Schofield is suspended having been sent off last weekened at Northampton - Ross Fitzsimons could deputise.

Otherwise, it could be same again for the Magpies who have given themselves a fighting chance with four points in their last two games heading into the run-in.

County won the reverse fixture 2-1 at Meadow Lane earlier this season & will be confident of continuing their resurgence.
