Preview: Crewe Aiming For Crawley Win

16 March 2019

Crewe Alexandra are looking to score for the first time in four games when Crawley Town come to Gresty Road on Saturday.

Despite Tuesday night's impressive performance at Cambridge United, the Alex missed several good chances to be held, following blanks against Northampton & Tranmere.

The point did arrest a run of three defeats, with the Alex now hoping to return to the winning front when the Red Devils come to the Alexandra Stadium.

Crawley have lost just two of their last eight games, picking up four points in their last two with a victory over Grimsby & scoreless draw with Mansfield.

Crewe lost the reverse fixture 3-0 in West Sussex earlier this season in a match that David Artell often refers to as the best Alex performance of the season - despite the result.


Date: Saturday 16 March 2019

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Alexandra Stadium

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Crewe 3-0 Crawley (Dec 2017)

Referee: Seb Stockbridge (P29, Y88, R1)


Crewe: George Ray is missing as he begins his two match suspension for accumulating ten yellow cards.

Crewe don't have any fresh injury concerns ahead of the match, but Tommy Lowery could be in line for a start after his performance off the bench in midweek.

Aaron Taylor-Sinclair too comes back into contention as do Nicky Hunt & Alex Nicholls who came back into the squad at Cambridge.


Crawley: The visitors lost their last away match 1-0 at MK Dons & drew the previous contest 0-0 at Northampton.

Form has been patchy in recent months, never knowing which Crawley team is going to turn up.

They didn't pick up any fresh injuries in the home 0-0 draw with Mansfield on Tuesday night, so the Reds could be set to name the same side, or mix things up in a bid to start scoring more goals.
