Crewe Alexandra and Derby County put their respective promotion hopes on hold this weekend as they meet in the first round of the FA Cup.


The hosts have been a surprise package in League Two this season. Tipped as one of the favourites for relegation, the Railwaymen are top scorers in the fourth tier - quite the achievement in a division that also includes the likes of Stockport County and Wrexham - and have forced their way into the promotion conversation as a result.

Lee Bell's side have been particularly impressive at home in 2023/24, and will be keen to make the most of that as they look to cause an upset against Derby at the Mornflake Stadium on Sunday.

Pressure had been building on Paul Warne, as Derby have failed to live up to the billing of pre-season promotion favourites, sitting seventh in League One after 15 games, but that has eased thanks to a 4-0 midweek win against Northampton and the news that he has the full backing of the club chiefs.

Parts of the fanbase are unconvinced, though, and an FA Cup run could be just what he needs to win them back over. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Crewe v Derby on TV and online.
