Preview: Crewe Welcome Colchester To Gresty Road

22 October 2019

Crewe returns to Gresty Road to host Colchester United on Tuesday night.

The Alex retained their spot at the top-of-the-table after a dramatic late win against Swindon Town on Saturday.

David Artell has managed his side to a seven unbeaten run in all competitions. Artell will be hoping his young side can make it three league wins on the bounce.

After defeat to Morecambe, Colchester have slumped to eleventh in the table. This defeat leaves the U’s with only one win in six games in all competitions.

The 19 points accumulated after 14 games has given manager John McGreal a foundation to build on, but quickly with the leading pack starting to move ahead already.
