Preview: Fish 'n' Chips Final Day At Grimsby

4 May 2019

Crewe Alexandra head to the seaside to face Grimsby Town on the final day of the Sky Bet League Two season.

Neither team have anything to play for in terms of promotion or relegation, but Crewe are desperate to secure all three points to cement a top half finish & break a Club record spanning 25-years by winning five games on the bounce.

In contrast, the Mariner's form has plummeted in recent months, winning only one of their previous 12 games - a 1-0 victory over Carlisle on Easter Monday.

Crewe won the reverse fixture 2-0 at Gresty Road in October, but Grimsby did come out victorious in the meeting at Blundell Park last season thanks to a solitary Mitch Rose header.

Though there may not be much to play for on the final day, Crewe fans will look to enjoy their day out with some famous Grimsby fish & chips & hopefully three points to bring back to South Cheshire.

 

Date: Saturday 4 May 2019

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Blundell Park

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Grimsby 1-0 Crewe (Sep 2017)

Referee: Craig Hicks (P39, Y111, R5)

Crewe: The Alex have Harry Pickering back from injury & in contention for the final day trip to Grimsby. Only Dave Richards is thought to be missing from the squad as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury.

Dave Artell must decide whether to stick with a similar side to that which has won four games on the bounce, or whether to give game-time to some of his other players on the final day.

 

Grimsby: Mariners boss Michael Jolley has said he will give some game time to some of his younger fringe players when Crewe come to town on the final day.

Ahkeem Rose, Ludvig Ohman & Jordan Cook are out injured & Harry Caldwell is doubtful. Former Crewe defender Harry Davis is set to face the Alex for the first time since leaving.

The Mariners are on a run of one win in twelve games to end the Sky Bet League Two season.
