For the first time in four seasons, Crewe Alexandra will make the long trip down from Cheshire to Adams Park as they will face a dangerous Wycombe Wanderers side.

Gareth Ainsworth’s men are currently in the League One play-off places following a run of five league games without defeat.

This is also boosted by the fact that Wanderers are unbeaten in their last seven league matches at Adams Park – a run that dates back to April.

They have also kept three clean sheets in the last three games.

Crewe on the other hand are enduring a torrid run of form.

Alexandra have only won once in League One this season and are without a win in the league in six matches, which has seen them become one of the basement teams in the division, as they currently occupy 23rd place.

However, despite their recent struggles, Crewe have got a relatively good record against the Chairboys, as they have beaten the South Bucks boys eight times in 19 matches.

Wycombe have also won eight of those matches, with there being three draws as well.

So, how will the match go this weekend?

I spoke to Crewe fan Tom Boon, and he shared his thoughts for Saturday’s match.

Were you expecting a better start to the season?

TB: “For me, I think a lot of Alex fans realised that this season wasn't going to be as successful as last season.

“Due to various reasons, we've lost Ng, Pickering, Wintle, Kirk, Dale and Lowery.

“They were arguably our six best players at the club, or at least six most talented.

“We had weird off pitch situations too, like the retirement of two of our summer signings and Artell has genuinely had a really tough job in my opinion.

“Watching us this season though, we should've gotten more points.

“Sometimes teams have been there for the taking or we've let a positive result slip due to game management. It'll be a tough old season, but I'll back the lads regardless.”

Who are the players Wycombe need to be on the lookout for?

TB: “I'd say Mika Mandron or Scott Kashket personally, Mika holds up the ball very well and if we create chances he'll put them away.

“As for Kashket, I'm assuming he needs no introduction to Wanderers fans.

“Hoping for a big game from him against his former club, could be a real difference-maker for the Alex as he'll know what to expect from you lot.

“Scott Robertson who we've got on loan from Celtic also looks a brilliant, talented player and has slotted into our midfield very well.

“Would watch out for those three on Saturday.”

Despite Crewe’s recent struggles, they have got a decent record against Wycombe – can you see that continuing this weekend?

TB: “No. I'm going this weekend, but without much hope of a journey back with three points.

“I think you'll easily outclass us, and I think you've got momentum building, especially with your great home record.

“Having a positive atmosphere around a club really makes a difference and Wycombe have that in abundance for me.

“I'd love nothing more than to be proved wrong, but I'm saying a 1-3 defeat for the Alex.

Can you see the season improving if you get a result at Adams Park?

TB: “It's a big if, but IF we get a result against you lot, I do think it'd build some sort of momentum and that we could push on and begin a turnaround of the season.

“The turnaround has got to come sooner rather than later and I do think that with a big result, a string of a fee positive ones could follow.

“We're close to being adrift already though and we need to get some points.

“Each game is a new challenge and an opportunity for three points, so we'll see.

“I'm usually optimistic with Crewe, but even I'm becoming a bit of a pessimist already.”

How do you see it going?

TB: “I'm going with a 3-1 win for Wycombe.

“I'd love to be proven wrong though and football's a funny old game, so I'll keep the faith.

“Enjoy the game at the weekend Wanderers.”

My prediction: Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 Crewe Alexandra
