Crewe striker has lost weight following recent illness.
Young striker Callum Saunders faces a race against time to declare himself fit for next weekend’s trip to Swindon after he picked up a recent throat infection. The Wales Youth International, who netted his first senior goal away at Doncaster Rovers back on 12th December has lost some weight due to the illness and has been unable to train.
Boss Steve Davis says the 20-year-old forward will have to train early next week to be under consideration for the trip to Wiltshire.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Callum has been ill and has been unable to train. He has had a throat infection and due to the illness he has lost some weight.
“He will have to get those fluids back into the body and work on his strength again because an infection like that can really affect a player.
“It will take him a bit of time to regain that weight and strength. He will have to train early next week if we are think about him for Swindon. It will be interesting to see if he will be able to get back into training at the start of the week.
“At the moment he would be a serious doubt for the Swindon game next weekend.”
