Crewe Alexandra have been drawn away at Jonathan Woodgate’s Middlesbrough in the 1st Round of the Carabao Cup after the draw was made in a Morrisons store in London this evening.

The two clubs have met just 4 times in history with the Alex winning the only game that has taken place in the FA Cup on route to our only semi-final appearance in 1888, Boro have won the only League Cup meeting in October 1961 whilst our first season in the Championship saw the teams draw at the Alexandra Stadium and a home win at the Riverside later in the season.
