Big Match Preview - Crewe v Cheltenham

Crewe take on Cheltenham tomorrow in what is a must win for the railwaymen. Cheltenham themselves will be looking to continue their good run of form to prevent relegation to league two for another week, as Crewe will look to distance themselves further from the dreaded drop zone.

Team News:

Crewe
- Gudjon Thordarson could name an unchanged side as Julian Baudet looks to have overcome a sligh hamstring injury to play.Clayton Donaldson is set to take a pain killing injectin to also play after suffering a sligh knock to his toe. The only absentees from the squad are long term casualties Steven Schumacher (knee), Alan Sheehan (ankle) and Mark Carrington (groin).

Cheltenham
- Marley Watkins and Jack Durrnay come back into contention as does Lee Ridley who has overcome a calf injury. Cheltenham however will be without forwards Elvis Hammond and Nicholas Bignall. Hammond has been ruled out for the season with a ankle injury and on Bignall has returned to Reading after suffering a groin strain.

Players to Watch

Crewe - After scoring his 4th goal of the season late at Oldham, Byron Moore will be full of confidence and Crewe will look to him to provide some width and pace for the alex.

Cheltenham - The robins will look for insparation from Frankie Artus, on loan from Bristol City. Artus has scored 3 goals in 5 games, including the winner at home to Yeovil on bank holiday monday.

You haven't won for a few games. Losing at home to Cheltenham is a very poor result, you'll probably go down.
