History of the Millwall v Crewe Alexandra fixture

Millwall prepare to entertain Crewe Alexandra at The New Den on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Lions are clearly on top, beating their opponents 5 times from 8 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The New Den was just last season, in December 2001, with Millwall running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a League Division One match.
