Skipper aiming to be fit for final game of the season
Crewe Alexandra are hopeful that captain Harry Davis will recover in time for this weekend’s final home game of the season against Bradford City. The centre-half was forced off early in the second half on Saturday after sustaining a hefty blow in his calf. Davis was replaced by Ant Stewart as Crewe went on to win 3-1 at Coventry.
Davis has not suffered a muscle tear but has suffered severe bruising and has been treated accordingly since.
Davis has featured in 32 games this season and rather surprisingly he has not scored this season. He has captained the side in the absence of the injured Matt Tootle.
Steve Davis told the club’s official web-site: “Harry is okay. He took a hefty knock to his calf and was not able to continue. He hasn’t suffered a tear or a strain with the muscle. It is more severe bruising.
“His muscle has suffered some swelling and soreness but I am sure it will settle down. Having the extra day will benefit him as well. We are hopeful it will settle down and he has shown improvement already.
“We are confident that he will train in the middle of the week and declare himself available for selection.”
