Crewe will looking to end an abysmal run of results in the FACup by despatching League Two Milton Keynes at the Alexandra Stadium.
This will be the first ever meeting between Crewe and MK Dons. Crewe will be looking to try and progress in to the 2nd round of this famous competition.
Crewe's recent record in the competition has been awful. You have to go back to 2001/02 season for a decent cup run.
Elliott Bennett and Simon Church have both been given the go ahead by their respective clubs to play in the FA Cup.
Midfielder Steve Schumacher is included in the squad after recovering from injury. Stuart Tomlinson, George Abbey, Danny O'Donnell, Michael O'Connor and Nicky Maynard are all out of the match.
Likely Team: Williams, Jones, Woodards, Baudet, McCready, Moore, Schumacher, Roberts, Bennett, Church, Lowe.
Returned to form and has been arguably our best player in recent games. Will be looking to keep his good run of form going.
Lively player with pace to burn. Should be playing at a higher level than league Two and is a player that the Crewe back line will have to watch carefully.
