Assistant manager Neil Baker has described Rotherham United as dangerous opening day opponents for Crewe Alexandra.

"I've always said over my career you don't want to play the promoted teams early on" - Neil Baker
The promoted Millers visit Gresty Road for the season's opener on Saturday 3rd August following the release of the new fixtures list earlier today.

Crewe will actually approach that game having lost their previous five league openers and Baker is naturally keen to reverse that recent trend.

"It's nice to start with home fixture, that's a plus," he told the Crewe Chronicle. "I've always said over my career you don`t want to play the promoted teams early on because they are still on a high after a good finish to last season.

"They are dangerous games," Baker warned. "But you can`t pick and choose and it will be interesting, one to look forward to and try to win."
