Crewe lost out on Penaltys at the Alexander Stadium on tuesday night.

Crewe had this to say..
"Bournemouth wanted it much more while we weren't that bothered. We certainly put effort in and the performance wasn't that bad it was lack of strikers that finished us off. We had 13 chances about 9 were clear cut. You can not blame players who have just come out of the reserves to finish them off every time. If it was Hulse or Ashton up there then fine but we didn't have a proven striker infact we didn't have a striker out there. We were playing 6 midfielders 4 defenders and a keeper."

So Stoke play Bournemouth. They currently sit 7th in Division Three. Last 5 games have all been draws (one being vs Crewe where they won on Penaltys) and a loss in the following order order - DLDDD.

We'll give a more in depth write up of Bournemouth nearer the time of the 4th Round FA Cup to be played on the weekend of the 25th/26th of January.
