It's back to the mundane task of trying to pick up points in the league. A vital task nonetheless.
Zero points have been picked up on the road so far but tomorrow's trip to Bristol Rovers may provide our best opportunity yet to put that right.
Believe it or not, Bristol Rovers have actually conceded more than us this season. A staggering 19 goals have been put past rovers in the league so far this season (only one more than our own record) and with one win and two defeats in three home games this season, there's definitely a chance for the Alex this weekend.
Bristol Rovers' Paul Trollope told thisisbristol.co.uk:
'They are in a similar position to us. They can score goals but concede them as well,' said Trollope.
'The evidence of the past few weeks suggests it could be a high-scoring game, although we have been working extensively on our defending at set pieces and in open play and we are hoping the players can transfer that onto the pitch.'
Bristol Rovers are struggling after a sick bug spread through their squad this week. Stuart Campbell and Aaron Lescott both missed training earlier in the week but should be fit for tomorrow. Top scorer Rickie Lambert however remains a doubt after missing training yesterday.
Winger Jeff Hughes returns after missing last week's game through a thigh injury.
Eight goals already this season for Lambert, if he recovers from illness before tomorrow's game then Danny O'Donnell is in for a long day.
Holland doesn't have any major new injury concerns. Outcast Ben Rix suffered a foot injury - possibly a hairline fracture - in a reserve game on Wednesday and is definitely out of contention.
Top scorer Pope opened his last season's account at the Memorial Stadium with a neat finish but it wasn't enough to secure three points.
Crewe: Collis, Woodards, Baudet, O'Donnell, Jones, Moore, Bailey, O'Connor, Carrington, Zola, Pope.
Bristol Rovers: Phillips, Ryan Green, Coles, Elliott, Lescott, Pipe, Disley, Campbell, Lines, Lambert, Duffy.
Bristol Rovers 1-2 Crewe
Northampton, Oct 4th, Gresty Road.
