Crewe Alexandra On This Day - February 4th

There have been 3 games played on February 4th this century.

In 2003 we travelled to Meadow Lane to face Notts County. Steve Jones and Rob Hulse gave the Alex a 2-goal lead inside 15 minutes before a Darren Caskey penalty on the hour-mark and Danny Allsopp 3 minutes from time gave County a draw.

Crewe: Ince; Wright, Walker, McCready, Vaughan; Lunt, Sorvel, Brammer, Jack (Sodje 84); S. Jones, Hulse

Notts County: Mildenhall, Holmes (Bollard 46), Ramsden (Allsopp 67), Fenton, Ireland, Liburd, Baraclough, Nicholson, Caskey, Heffernan (Harrad 85), Stallard

3 years later saw us host Reading at the Alexandra Stadium. Lee Bell gave the hosts the lead in the 14th minute before Reading took a 3-1 lead into half-time thanks to goals from Nicky Shorey, Steve Sidwell and Leroy Lita. Gareth Taylor pulled one back before Lita extended the lead a couple of minutes later with Kenny Lunt scoring a penalty mid-way through the second half before he was sent off for a professional foul in the 90th minute.

Crewe: Turnbull; Otsemobor, B. Jones, Foster, Tonkin (Moss 87); Lunt, Bell (McCready 69), Roberts, S. Jones; Rodgers, Taylor

The final game happened last year with a trip to Exeter`s St James Park. Jordan Moore-Taylor gave the Grecians the lead in the 8th minute before 2 David Wheeler goals and a late Lloyd goal an easy victory whilst Charlie Kirk got a late red card.

Crewe: Garratt; Turton, Ray (Bakayago 12), Nugent, Guthrie; Jones, Hollands (Kirk 75), Cooke; Kiwomya (Dagnall 67), Bowery, Cooper
