Lowe return would give Steve difficult decision to make.
Steve Davis admits that he could have a difficult selection to make for the visit of Accrington Stanley on New Year’s Eve if his captain and top scorer Ryan Lowe declares himself fit for selection. Crewe had to operate without the experienced striker for our Boxing Day clash with Carlisle after he was ruled out with a tight hamstring sustained away bat Cambridge.
Lowe, 38, has undergone an injection and has received sufficient rest to give him a chance to face Stanley at the Alexandra Stadium for our final game of 2016 but with youngster Charlie Kirk performing well in our 1-1 with the Cumbrians, it leaves the boss with a tough call to make.
Steve explained to the club’s official web-site: “The overall performance and the performance of individuals means it will be a difficult decision to leave anyone out.
“Hopefully, we will have Ryan back with us, because that gives us a great option. The competition is getting better and that is what we want to create.
“It is difficult to change the team following a performance like that and he will understand that.
“He is a great captain and he was in the dressing room after the game and was buoyed by the performance. He was saying it was much better gaffer and that we need to take it into the next game.
“Ryan has had his injection and he needed a few days for it to settle down and he has had that now, so hopefully we will have him available for the next couple of games.”
