HEAD-TO-HEAD: Crewe Alexandra v Coventry City - City could go ahead in the all-time league meetings with a win over the Alex

9 October 2014

The Sky Blues currently have the edge overall, and look to replicate their win over The Alex at Gresty Road last season…

Coventry City have the chance to record their first win in four league games when they take on Crewe Alexandra at Gresty Road this Saturday.

Following City's 3-1 win over Exeter in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, attention focuses back to League One and the Sky Blues take on a rock-bottom Crewe side desperately searching for a win.

In the head to head records City have the edge, winning 11 times to Crewe's 8. There have been five draws between the two, the last coming in December 2013.

In the league both teams have won seven times, with four draws. The last time City did the double over the Railwaymen was in 2001/02, beating the Alex 1-0 at Highfield Road, before handing out a 6-1 thrashing in the return fixture at Gresty Road, which featured a Lee Hughes hat-trick.

City will want to replicate the last two away performances against Crewe, both resulted in victories. In march a double from Callum Wilson either side of a Jordan Clarke own goal gave the Sky Blues all three points.

In 2013 City suffered heartbreak. In the Johnsotnes Paint Trophy area final, two goals in injury time saw the Sky Blues a 2-0 win on the night at Gresty Road, but it wasn't enough to get to Wembley, after the Railwaymen won 3-0 in the first leg to secure their place.
