* Dale have won 38 of the previous 59 home fixtures, losing 11 times and drawing 10
* Our last home win over Crewe came in March 2015 when two Ian Henderson penalties and a brace from Joe Bunney helped Dale to a fine 4-0 midweek victory
* Dale have been beaten only once in their last ten home league games versus The Railwaymen
* Dale’s best win versus Crewe is 6-1, which they achieved at Gresty Road in September 1956

Dale blew a two-goal lead and had to settle for a 2-2 draw when Crewe were last at Spotland in February 2016.
Rhys Bennett and Joe Bunney gave Dale their flying start with goals inside the first six minutes, but Alex fought back to draw level before half-an-hour had been played.
