The next game saw Crewe travel to Swansea City`s Liberty Stadium in 2006. Rory Fallon gave the Swans a 24th minute lead before a Gary Roberts penalty 8 minutes later levelled the game. Leon Knight scored the winner 8 minutes after the break.

Crewe: Williams; Moss, Buadet, O`Donnell (Lowe 66), Jones; Rix, Cox (Rodgers 85), Roberts, Vaughan; Maynard, Varney
