PREVIEW: Crewe Alexandra v Coventry City - The Sky Blues' 'ten-game season' begins at Gresty Road

The Sky Blues head to Gresty Road in SkyBet League Two...

16 March 2018

Venue: Gresty Road

Competition: SkyBet League Two

Date: Saturday 17th March 2017

Kick-off: 3pm

The Sky Blues head to Gresty Road in SkyBet League Two to face ninteenth place Crewe Alexandra as the final ten games of their season begin.

Mark Robins' side climbed back into the play-off places for the first time since January on Tuesday night after an evnetful 2-2 draw with free-scoring Luton Town at the Ricoh Arena.

City will be without Jordan Willis for this one. Last-season's captain went over on his ankle training at the Alan Higgs centre on Monday and faces two-to-four weeks on the sidelines, joining Tom Davies (collar bone), Jodi Jones (ACL) and Tony Andreu (ACL).

Crewe manager David Artell hope that former City midfielder Jamie Sterry will be fit after thigh problem kept him out of last weekend's 2-2 draw with Stevenage.

Chris Dagnall, James Jones, Ryan Wintle and Chris Porter all remain out.

The Opponents

Top scorer for the Railwaymen is former Derby and Sheffield United forward Chris Porter. The 33-year old has scored nine goals since his move from Colchester in the summer and will be a big miss for Alex tomorrow.

A recognisable name on the back of tomorrow's programme is Chris Dagnall. The former Coventry loanee scored just once during his time at the Ricoh, a second-half equaliser at Stadium M:K in a game that City would fight back to win 3-1 in front of 5,000 travelling supporters.

Also upfront for the Alex is former Aston Villa youngster Jordan Bowery. Bowery made 19 Premier League appearances for the Villains as a 21-year old after a successful start to his career with Chesterfield.
