What 3 Things do we need to do to beat Crewe Alexandra tomorrow afternoon at Sincil Bank?
1. A brief trawl around the Crewe forum reveals a defence prone to errors, although they appear to have tightened things up in the last fortnight. So we press very high.
2. The atmosphere is not great at Crewe. The relationship between fans and manager is increasingly negative, with many wanting him removed. That must affect the relationship between players and manager too. An early goal could rock their fragile confidence further and spark a goal rush.
3. They have a habit of conceding late in games (89th minute at Notts County; 79th, 89th and 90th at Swindon; 84th and 92nd against Wycombe, all in the last month). Therefore we make sure we have some fresh legs on the bench for the final quarter. (Tuesday night: And two more in stoppage time tonight – 92nd & 95th – to lose 2-1 to Exeter.)
