Alex will have to be at their defensive best to keep out high scoring U's this evening.
Promotion chasing Oxford United arrive in South Cheshire this evening as one of the division’s in-form sides and especially when it comes to scoring goals. Karl Robinson’s Oxford side defeated Charlton Athletic 4-0 at the weekend and previously put seven past Gillingham at the end of January. They have already scored 60 goals in the league this season!
The U’s have scored the most goals in League One this season and have had the most shots on targets.
Crewe fans will well remember the 6-0 home drubbing we suffered last season too!
Crewe Alexandra, who are bottom of the form table after going six without a win, will have to upset the odds if we are to get only our 6th victory of a difficult and disappointing campaign.
Ahead of our encounter at the Mornflake Stadium, Artell told us: “Oxford have scored the most goals in the division and are right up there for shots on target, so we know it is going to be another tough game.
“They are all tough games in this division and we know we are up against another good team in Oxford. They beat us comfortably at our place last season but they are also fallible because we were worthy winners at their place too.
“They are a tough nut to crack and have good, attacking players and we will to play to the best of our ability to get a result, we know that.”
