Preview: Alex In Boxing Day Clash

26 December 2019

The Christmas period is always a busy one in football, and it's no exception for Crewe Alexandra on Boxing Day, as they make the trip to Salford City.

On Saturday, Crewe recorded an emphatic victory away to Stevenage. Chuma Anene netted twice as the Alex stormed to a 5-1 victory at the Lamex Stadium.

Three points saw Crewe moved up into third position in the SkyBet League Two stadium, and will hope push on from Saturday's win.

Another game in a hectic festive schedule, but it's a short trip to Salford for the Alex.

Date: Saturday 26th December 2019

Competition: SkyBet League Two

Venue: Peninsula Stadium

Referee: Peter Wright

Previous Meeting at Host Club: We are yet to play Salford away from home!

Team News:

Crewe: Chris Porter could make his return to the side, after the striker missed the last two games through injury. Chuma Anene, who scored twice against Stevenage, picked up a slight niggle in the victory. Dave Artell said he will wrap the Norweigan in cotton wool to make sure he's alright for the game.

Salford: Salford are currently facing no new injury worries ahead of this clash, so boss Graham Alexander can pick a similar squad to the one that faced Bradford City at the weekend.
