Crewe Alex are on the road again this evening as they take on Middlesbrough in the first round of the Carabao Cup.
Fresh from Saturday’s first win of the season at Oldham Athletic, David Artell’s men will turn their attentions to the task of getting a cup run started.
They will have taken great heart from the three-pointer at Boundary Park, where Chris Porter’s brace capped a good team performance.
And they will be keen to claim the scalp of their Championship hosts, with the potential of a money-spinning run in the competition on offer.
But, needless to say, it won’t be easy. New Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate is targeting his first win in the role, after a defeat and a draw in their first two matches.
And although he may prioritise the league and make changes tonight, he has a large squad packed with quality at his disposal with the hosts starting the match as strong favourites to progress.
Can Crewe cause an upset?
Stay with us as we bring you all the build-up, live action and reaction after the game.
