There have been two games played on March 2nd this century.

The first saw a trip to Vicarage Road to face Watford in 2002 with Dean Ashton scoring the only goal of the game on 73 minutes.

Crewe: Ince; Wright, Sodje, Walton, Smith; Collins, Lunt, Sorvel, Rix (Little 63); Ashton, Hulse

Watford: Chamberlain, Cox, Galli, Robinson, Brown, Gayle, Glass (Cook 62), Hyde, Nielsen, Okon (Hand 10), Smith (Helguson 62)

The other happened 5 years ago as we hosted Portsmouth at the Alexandra Stadium. Patrick Agyemang (6) and David Connolly (29) had the visitors into an early two-goal lead before Mathias Pogba halved the deficit in the 63rd minute.

Crewe: Phillips; Tootle (Mellor 65), Davis, Ellis, Robertson; Aneke (Clayton 46), Murphy, Osman; Moore, Leitch-Smith, Pogba

Portsmouth: Eastwood, Moutaouakil, Butler, Ertl, Gyepes, Rocha, Racon, Walker (Reed 76), Wallace, Agyemang (Akinde 86), Connolly (Keene 46)
