Crewe Up Next

U's face tough test in Cheshire this weekend

25 January 2019

Colchester United take on Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, looking to put pressure on the top three in the League Two table.

John McGreal and the U's head up to the North West on Friday afternoon, ready to take on a side that have a decent home record to defend.

Crewe may sit in fourteenth place in the table, but only three teams have picked up more points on home territory than David Artell's Railwaymen.

And only Bury in second place have won more home games than the nine that Crewe have gained this season. 

The U's have picked up five wins away from the JobServe Community Stadium though, and will be hoping to follow up the 3-0 victory at Port Vale with another win this time round.

Head Coach John McGreal had a lot of praise for the U's opponents, telling the local press on Thursday: "David and Crewe do things in a similar way to us, they have good young players coming through, complemented by decent experienced professionals that they recruit from elsewhere."

"They are in the top four in the division in terms of their home record, but we go up there as we do wherever we go - looking to get the win and the three points."
