Footymad preview History of the Coventry City v Crewe Alexandra fixture

Crewe Alexandra face a trip to Coventry City at Sixfields Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Railwaymen will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Sixfields Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2013, with Crewe Alexandra inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the Sky Blues in a League One match.
