Crewe can make it three league wins in a row for only the second time this season when they head down the M6 to Walsall on Easter Monday. Three points could well mean either near enough safety or relegation for Port Vale.
Talking after their 2-0 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday, Walsall manager Richard Money wants more from Walsall fans this Monday.
'This result is not going to determine who finishes in the top six. We have some important games coming up, starting with the visit of Crewe on Monday and we need everyone pulling in the same direction so that we can return to winning ways.' Money told saddlers.co.uk.
'We have received excellent backing at our last two away games and now we need more of the same at home.'
And that's all the quotes for the game we have.
Richard Taundry and Mark Bradley are out of the game for the Saddlers. Taundry is still serving a suspension picked up earlier in the month whilst Bradley will be away for Wales U-21 duty.
In the nets for Walsall will be former Alex record holder Clayton Ince. The Trinidad keeper has been in fine form again this season holding one of the better defensive records in the division.
Even at 36 Mooney is still doing the business... just about. Ten goals this season means he's still a threat but the fact he's failed to score in the past nine games may help the Alex defence sleep easier.
It could be the same team that beat Hartlepool.
The impressive Michael O'Connor will be available for selection after agreeing to join the N.Ireland squad after Monday's game. Any changes will depend on if any players are tired from Saturday, and if O'Donnell or McCready are fit enough to return to the centre of defence.
We will be without a sub keeper with Tomlinson injured and Owain Fon Williams away on international duty; however, Holland has already played half the season without a keeper on the bench.
It will be Dean Morgan's last game for the club unless the Alex can agree a loan extension with Luton Town.
The young striker has scored five of our last eight goals and is looking on top form again. After his double on Saturday scouts will surely be back out to watch the 21 year old and we can only hope he impresses.
Gary Roberts is one yellow card from a suspension.
The two sides have met 61 times in their histories. Walsall take advantage with 30 wins over our 19. There have been 12 draws.
