Crewe Alex. face a trip to Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 10 out of 13 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2004, the Hornets carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League Division One match.
