10th April 2004- New Division One, Watford 2 Crewe Alexandra 1

Happily for us, none of our other rivals in the unseemly melee at the foot of the first division made the blindest bit of difference to their chances of survival during our two weeks of Millwall-induced inactivity. Crewe, who are very much still one of those clubs in trouble, arrived at The Vic for the first of three fixtures which given the all round closeness of the battle, are not so much “winner takes all” as “winner takes a small step away from trouble but still get to look over their shoulders anxiously”. With mouth-watering trips to Burnley and Rotherham to follow, a win was not so much desired as down right essential to our prospects. Small steps maybe, but ones we have to take.
