Crewe could not have got 2022 off to a much worse start than they did on Saturday, with Burton Albion comprehensively seeing them off by a 4-1 scoreline at the Pirelli Stadium.

Despite Tom Lowery equalising inside the 19th minute, David Artell‘s side found themselves 3-1 down by half time, before their opponents netted a fourth in second-half stoppage time to compound their New Year misery even further.

The Railway Men were well beaten on the day and the result saw them drop a place in the League One table to 23rd, with four points now between themselves and Fleetwood Town outside of the relegation places.

Tuesday’s cup tie is sure to be a welcome distraction from Alexandra’s dreadful league campaign so far, as they look to book their spot in the next round of a competition that they are yet to concede in this season.

After progressing from their group consisting of Wigan Athletic, Shrewsbury Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers Under-21s with a 100% record, Crewe saw off fellow strugglers Doncaster Rovers in round two by a 2-0 scoreline.

Artell knows his side will have to lift their game on Tuesday though, with their visitors being one of the favourites to lift the trophy this year.

Crewe’s top goal scorer Mikael Mandron looks set to lead the line again on Tuesday, despite rumours linking the striker with a move to Wigan during the transfer window.

Will Jaaskelainen should regain his spot in goal after featuring in the earlier rounds of the competition, with Dave Richards dropping out of the starting 11.

The likes of Donervon DanielsTerell Thomas and Scott Robertson will also be pushing for starts, as Artell could look to rotate his side following the hectic schedule over the festive period.

As for the visitors, Mickel Miller will be unavailable once more on Tuesday after the forward missed the win over Bolton due to a hamstring injury.

Angus MacDonald continues to near his return from a long-term injury, but will still remain out until the end of January at least.
