Places Still Up For Grabs

Steve says someone could emerge over Easter fixtures to play at Wembley

April (Kick Off 13.15pm).thSteve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that places are still up for grabs ahead of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final on Sunday 7

The Alex boss says that those players who can impress over the Easter period and in training still have a chance of making the 16-man squad for the Wembley final next month. Davis always stated that the team that overcame Coventry City in the Northern Section Final could well differ from the one that line’s up against the Shrimpers in London.

Following last night's 2-0 defeat to Crawley, the Alex boss said that places are certainly up for grabs for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “The opportunities are there and I always thought that the team that started against Coventry could be very different to the one that plays at Wembley. There are many factors behind that. Injuries can happen, there can be a loss of form or someone comes in and takes their chance.

“The creation of that competition has been the idea all season and the opportunities are still there for someone to come in and make a difference. We have two tough games over Easter and if someone can grab their chance then they could stay in.

“We had fringe players doing that of late. Ryan Colclough has done well, taken his chance and stayed in the team for Crawley.

"Michael West has also caught the eye in the Under-21s. He has improved and been the stand out performer. He has been doing really well of late." The boss added:
