Preview: Crewe Look To Unsettle Mansfield Promotion Bid

23 March 2019

Crewe Alexandra head to Mansfield Town looking to upset the applecart & put a dent in David Flitcroft's sides automatic promotion hopes. 

The Stags have won four of the last five on their own patch, but Crewe's away form has picked up recently - losing just one of the previous six on the road.

Crewe are looking to build on last weekend's crushing 6-1 victory over Crawley, whilst Mansfield are in fact winless in three games - losing to Port Vale before draws with Crawley & then Lincoln City.

With The Alex effectively safe from relegation & not involved in the promotion picture, Dave Artell's charges can go to Mansfield & play without pressure in a bid to get an impressive three points.
