After back to back away matches, Crewe return home for the visit of rock bottom Bournemouth
Crewe will be looking to get back to winning ways after picking up just 2pts from the last four fixtures. Bournemouth travel to the Alexandra Stadium having lost the last three fixtures against Brighton, Carlisle and Swindon respectively.
Apart from the blip against Leyton Orient at the end of August, our home far has been pretty impressive. In the month of September the opposition failed to net against us at the Alexandra Stadium.
Lee Barnard is rated as very doubtful after taking several knocks in a bruising encounter at Tranmere midweek.
Danny Woodards is also a doubt and if he fails to make it, George Abbey will step in at right back. Byron Moore will be pushed in to attack if Barnard fails to recover. Julien Baudet, Stuart Tomlinson and Nicky Maynard are ruled out.
Likely Team: Williams, Jones, Woodards, O'Donnell, McCready, Schumacher, Rix, Roberts, Bopp, Moore, Lowe.
Back in goalscoring form midweek, he despatched a 2nd half penalty in a creditable 1-1 draw at Tranmere. He is the club's leading goalscorer and will be hoping to be on the mark once again in the match against Bournemouth
Bournemouth have no new injury concerns but several first teamers continue to be sidelined. Neil Young (Knee Strain), Steven Foley (Back), Jean Christophe (Wrist), Marvin Bartley (Groin), Russ Perrett (Hamstring) and Warren Cummings (Arm) will all miss out on the trip to Crewe.
The former Portsmouth man hit a hatrick on the opening day of the season for Southend but has since joined Bournemouth on a free. He scored both goals for the Cherries in a 2-0 win against Walsall in early September.
Bournemouth 1-0 Crewe
Crewe 2-0 Bournemouth
Crewe - D-L-D-L-W-D = 6PTS
Bournemouth - L-L-L-D-L-W = 4PTS
Crewe - 10/11
Draw - 9/4
Bournemouth - 13/5
The Referee for the game will be Colin Webster from Tyne and Wear. He has officiated in 8 games so far this season, issuing 21 yellows and no red cards.
On his last visit to the Alexandra Stadium he was in charge of our fantastic 2-0 win against Premiership side Wigan Athletic in the early part of last season. He will be assisted by P.P Davies and R.H Smith, the fourth official will be I.Nolan.
Crewe Alexandra 3-0 AFC Bournemouth
