Accrington Stanley face a trip to Crewe Alexandra at The Alexandra Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Reds will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 21 and win only 7 of the 34 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2011, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Two match.
