In 2005, we hosted Burnley at the Alexandra Stadium. Steve Jones gave the Alex the lead in the 18th minute before Tony Grant would level the scores 8 minutes after the break. Both scorers would go on to play for the other team in 2006.

The other game was played 4 years ago as we hosted Brentford. 2 Alan Judge goals added to by Adam Forshaw gave Brentford a 3-goal lead before Chuks Aneke got the Alex on the score-sheet with a 70th minute penalty.

Crewe: Garratt; Tootle, Davis, Ellis, Guthrie; Evans, Osman (Moore 77), Grant; Aneke, Pogba, Inman (Waters 87)
