Preview: Crewe Alexandra

23 October 2012

Swindon make the trip to fellow railway town side Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday evening looking to record their first win in the league since their last away trip over a fortnight ago.

THE VIEW

Manager Paolo Di Canio wants his side to play with more attention and desire at The Alexandra Stadium.

Speaking to the media ahead of the match, the manager called on his players to be more focused in front of goal.

He said: “The last three away games we won but we know that we can win if we play with more attention and desire. Also the players know that we will create less chances. We have to be more focused and take our chances.

“At home we know that we can create six or seven chances but yes we go there trying to win. Obviously it’s not easy because for exactly the same situation as before I can’t expect some players to give 100% in terms of physical and psychological battle.”

THE STORY SO FAR

Since winning promotion to League One through the play-offs last season, Crewe have had a mixed start to the new campaign. Having only won four games, the Alex sit in 19th place in League One, three points clear of the relegation zone.

LAST TIME OUT

Swindon’s last went to Crewe in March of this year where they were on the wrong end of a 2-0 score-line. The Robins last won at Gresty Road in April 2003 when a Stefani Miglioranzi goal secured a 1-0 win for the Town.
