Crewe Alexandra On This Day - September 7th

There have only been two competitive fixtures on September 7th in the 25-year period, taking place in 2002 and 2013.

The game in 2002 saw Crewe Alexandra host Chesterfield in a goalless affair.

Crewe: Ince; Foster, Sodje, Walker, Wright; Brammer (Miles 77), Lunt, Sorvel; Little (S. Jones 75), Ashton, Jack

Chesterfield: Muggleton; Booty, Payne, Dawson, Davies; Brandon, Howson, Hudson, Rushbury; Howard (Burt 3), Reeves

The other game saw the Alex host Peterborough United in 2013. Goals from Vadaline Oliver and AJ Leitch-Smith gave Crewe a 2-goal lead inside 20 minutes before goals in stoppage-time of both halves from Tyrone Barnett and Michael Bostwick gave the Posh a share of the points.

Crewe: Phillips; Tootle (Mellor 67), Davis, Ellis, Robertson; Molyneux (Moore 73), Osman, Aneke, Inman; Leitch-Smith, Oliver (Grant 80)

Peterborough: Olejnik; Little, Alcock, Bostwick, Payne; Knight-Percival, McCann, Swanson (Mendez-Laing 63); Assombalonga, Barnett, Tomlin
