About the Match…

Our visitors, Crewe Alexandra have been on a steady run of form lately, having picked up 10 points out of a possible 18 since 17th February.  They call themselves the Railwaymen and they on right on track as they continue to edge further and further from the dreaded end-of-season battle against relegation to the non-league.

You can find out more about this week’s opposition, officials, and all the team news in our Pre-Match Preview.  You can also read up on Manager Michael Flynn’s thoughts ahead of the match by clicking here.

Great!  We look forward to welcoming you!  Rodney Parade is located right in the heart of the City and there's always plenty to do before and after a game.  We aim to create a fantastic atmosphere throughout the whole ground to allow you to really enjoy your time in Newport.
