Share your memories of previous clashes between the Gills and Crewe AlexandraGillingham take on Crewe Alexandra at Gresty Road in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday and here’s our pick of the recent past encounters between the two teams.
GILLINGHAM 3-4 CREWE MARCH 2012
The Alex ended Andy Hessenthaler’s side’s five game unbeaten run in a highly entertaining seven goal thriller at MEMS Priestfield Stadium. Gills looked to be heading for a home defeat after a brace from Manchester United bound Nick Powell, and a goal from AJ Leitch-Smith put the visitors 3-1 up, midway through the second-half. Goals from Chris Whelpdale and a first senior strike from Ashley Miller, added to Jack Payne’s earlier effort, looked to have secured a point for Gillingham, but Max Clayton’s injury time header saw all three points heading back to Cheshire.

CREWE 1-1 GILLINGHAM FEBRUARY 2011
A superb long-range strike from Curtis Weston earned the Gills a hard-fought but deserved point at the Alexandra Stadium in a game that saw Simon King make his first Gillingham appearance since the Wembley Play-Off Final triumph in May 2009. Sadly Kingy’s return lasted just 17 minutes and his replacement Tony Sinclair fared little better, slicing a clearance into his own net to put the hosts in front on 27 minutes. Fortunately Weston came to his side’s rescue midway through the second half, the attacking midfielder crashing an unstoppable effort beyond Rhys Taylor to earn the Gills a share of the spoils.

CREWE 2-3 GILLINGHAM DECEMBER 2007
The Gills, under new manager Mark Stimson, recorded their first away win of the campaign thanks to a second-half double form on loan striker Chris Dickson. Midfielder Mark Bentley headed the visitors into an eighth minute lead but Crewe went 2-1 up thanks to goals either side of the break from Nicky Maynard and Gary Roberts. Dickson brought the visitors back into the game with a 56th minute spot-kick and wrapped up all three points on 73 minutes, volleying into the roof of the net from a tight angle.
