Recent respective form guides

Crewe Alexandra's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Railwaymen have scored 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Scunthorpe U.'s away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Crewe Alex. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 16 points. Scunthorpe U. are just outside the promotion places, in 4th, having taken 44 points from 24 games.
