Match Preview: Crewe v Wycombe


Wycombe Wanderers travel to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday for their 19th league game of the season.


The league table currently shows Wycombe in 7th place with 28 points and Crewe in 9th spot with 25 points.

Crewe's Home Record........Won 3 - Drawn 3 - Lost 3 - Pts 12 (Rank 14)

Wycombe's Away Record....Won 4 - Drawn 4 - Lost 1 - Pts 16 (Rank 3)


With a pitch inspection planned for noon on Friday and no sign of a let up in the freezing weather conditions, it looks like this game will be off.

Having spoken to Crewe officials, Wycombe's club secretary Keith Allen told wwfc.com: "At this stage, the prospects of us playing on Saturday look remote. There is frost in the ground, snow lying on top of the pitch covers and more frost is anticipated, including Friday night. They are having a pitch inspection at lunchtime on Friday and they expect that the game will be postponed."

In the event of a miraculous thaw, the Blues will attempt to halt a run of two consecutive league defeats, while Crewe will attempt to overtake them in the table with a third win in four games.

Here are the stats - just in case......
