Preview|Stevenage (H)

3 September 2022

Crewe Alexandra return to league action as Stevenage visit Mornflake Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

The Railwaymen will aim to extend their three-match unbeaten run in League Two, but face a tough task against an in-form Boro outfit.

The Opposition

Stevenage sit fifth after six rounds of fixtures, winning on four occasions, drawing and losing once against Walsall and Salford City respectively.

Steve Evans’s side were 2-1 winners in their last outing against Peterborough United in the Carbao Cup, with Jake Taylor and Carl Piergianni on the scoresheet. 

The Gaffer

Steve Evans took the reins at Broadhall Way in March, when the club were close to the relegation zone. The experienced manager guided his side clear with three games to spare and they comfortably retained their EFL status. 

Fighting Talk

Alex Morris: "They’ve only lost one game in six in the league, and had good results in the cups, so they’ve built a winning mentality early in the season. It’ll be a really tough game but it’s one we are looking to win.”

Steve Evans: "If it ends up as a total football match with lots of passing, they’ll win. But we have a style and identity too and we have to put that onto Crewe"

Team news

Crewe continue to be without Lachlan Brook (ankle), Christopher Long (ankle), Charlie Colkett (hamstring) and Rio Adebisi (foot). 

Stevenage anticipate travelling north with a full squad, which includes Deadline Day loan signing Alex Gibley who joined from Charlton Athletic.

Head to Head

The Alex are unbeaten in their six meetings against Stevenage, winning five - including a 3-1 victory in their most recent match-up courtesy of goals from Chris Porter, Charlie Kirk and Ryan Wintle in March 2020. 


Tom Nield will be the referee, having last been in the middle for a Crewe match on Boxing Day 2020 - a 1-1 draw against Fleetwood Town.

He will be assisted by Chris Isherwood and Blake Antrobus, with Ross Joyce appointed as fourth official.
