Crewe Alexandra's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Railwaymen have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Crewe Alex. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 29 games have yielded only 22 points. Plymouth Arg. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 29 points from 27 matches.
