Bring it on.
I see we haven't beaten a team at home in the league by more than 1 goal since Rochdale in August. Be nice to get a 2-0 or a 3-1 for a change.
Crewe beat Orient in the cup and have just beaten ColU, but they are bottom.

3-1 Town after conceding a 2nd minute goal.

3-1 att: 9,621 (193 away)

The 3 ticket bundle deal starts this match so I am predicting a slightly higher crowd.

Apparently Colchester missed 2/3 golden chances and Crewe we’re lucky to win.

‘Lee Bell has confirmed this morning that leading goalscorer Baker-Richardson will be out for ‘the foreseeable future’.’

Crewe got their first win in 8 league games with a 1-0 victory over bottom of the table Colchester on Saturday.

Alex sit in 16th place with just 5 wins and 7 draws so far but having lost just 5 games which is the 7th lowest loss count in L2 (we have lost 3 making us equal 2nd lowest behind Orient).

So far they have score just 16 times (5th lowest in L2) and conceded 20 goals which is only 2 more than Town have conceded.

Their top scorer is striker Courtney Baker-Richardson on 7 and Daniel Agyei on 5, the rest have scored single goals only.

They are currently managerless with ex player Lee Bell in temporary charge of team affairs as they look for a new manager after Alex Morris unusually stepped down to become assistant manager only 2 weeks ago after a winless run of 9 games.

Crewe have ex Town midfielders Conor Thomas and Charlei Colkett in the squad and tend to play in a 4321 Christmas Tree formation with the Sambou up front as a target man.

They were very lucky against Colchester with Colchester having the much better chances but the very tall young Crewe keeper Arthur Okonkwo (on loan from Arsenal and Wollacott lookalike) won all the plaudits with his MotM performance after Colchester had 13 shots against them with 6 on target.

From the Crewe forum after Saturdays win....

A classical example of how to put in a truly woeful display and win a game.

It was truly woeful. Sambou should understand from that performance that he is not a number 9.
However, the positives: Arthur is truly emerging as a good goalkeeper and Luke Offord is confirming himself as one of the outstanding defenders of the division. Colkett looks like he could be useful in adding some entertainment to the team.
Apart from those there's not much to say. I just can't wait much longer for the return of Mcdonald, Ainley, CBR and most of all Long.

We found a way to win a truly awful game. Arthur was mom with two blinding low down saves and the one decent bit of football with a superb cross from Uwakwe on to Agyei's head won us the game.
Midfield subs Colkett and Finney improved us in the second half. Shout out to Sambou...the guy worked his socks off and it was appreciated by the crowd. Billy Sass is going backwards I'm afraid, good in the air, but the rest of a centre half's game has disappeared from his performance

I'd have been feeling pretty depressed tonight without Arthur between the sticks that's for sure.

Crewe are going backwards fast
