Last Time Out:

Yeovil Town 3-0 Crewe Alexandra, 17th April 2017

Last season`s fixture at Huish Park saw the hosts win and complete a league double having already won 1-0 at the Alexandra Stadium earlier in the season. Matty Dolan gave the hosts the lead on the half-hour with a 25-yard free-kick before Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro heading home a free-kick from the left-wing on the stroke of half-time. The third of the game came 20 minutes from time with a corner taken short with Otis Khan finishing at the second attempt after Ben Garratt kept his initial header out.

Crewe: Garratt; Turton, Ray © (Wintle 46), Ng, Bakayago; Jones, Bingham, Cooke (Kiwomya 46); Dagnall (Kiwomya 75), Bowery, Ainley (Cooper 59)


Looking back through the archives, the 2 clubs have met 12 times with Yeovil leading the head-to-head having 7 wins to 4 with 1 draw. The biggest win for Crewe was the 3-0 victory in April 2008 at Huish Park whilst Wycombe`s biggest win came in the last meeting.
