Moore Major Doubt

23 August 2013

Wide man struggling with re-occurence of quad injury

Crewe Alexandra could be without their in-form winger Byron Moore for the trip to London this week. Moore, who was one of the stars of the show against Tranmere Rovers last weekend, has seen his thigh injury flare up again and that has forced him to miss days of training this week. The club’s management team and fitness coach Andy Franks will assess how he is today before deciding if the pacey wide man will travel or not.

Moore recently missed a couple of fixtures after aggravating his thigh in the opening day 3-3 draw with Rotherham, but he was able to return in the 2-1 win over Rovers and certainly play his part in the club’s first victory of the season.

Crewe boss Steve Davis told “Byron is a major doubt again. His quad is troubling him again and he hasn’t been able to train much this week. His scar tissue in the muscle had healed for him to play against Tranmere last weekend, but it re-opened and has troubled him again.

“We will have to assess how he is but if he has aggravated the same muscle then we could be without him for a few weeks.”

 If Moore doesn’t make the trip to the Capital then it could mean a first start of the season for the former Accrington Stanley winger Lee Molyneux, or even new signing Brad Inman after the club received the green light last night for the former Newcastle man to join us on a permanent basis.
