2 years later saw us host Torquay United. Chris Zebroski gave the visitors a 7th minute lead before Shaun Miller scored a last-minute equaliser for the Alex.

Crewe: Phillips; Brayford, O`Donnell, Worley, Tootle; Westwood, Schumacher, Walton (Moore 75); Donaldson (Miller 68), Zola, Grant (Murphy 57)
