Defender to be nursed through after reporting a tight hamstring after Plymouth game.
Defender Harry Davis has been suffering with a tight hamstring in the wake of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Plymouth Argyle but the stand-in captain will face Cheltenham Town in the FA Cup. Davis captained the side again with Ryan Lowe ruled out through injury.
With full-backs Ollie Turton and Zoumana Bakyayogo both struggling with hamstring injuries and George Ray only just returning to training following a hip injury, Crewe could ill-afford to lose their most experienced defender for our FA Cup replay.
Boss Steve Davis has been unfortunate to suffer a glut of injuries at the same time and he will have to re-jig his back-line for the visit of Gary Johnson’s side.
Steve revealed to crewealex.net: “Harry has had a tight hamstring and is a bit vulnerable but we will have to nurse him through a bit because we don’t have too many options.
“If we lose another defender then we do not have too much cover there. We will be entering the unknown with one of the younger players but we might not much choice because we have three out with injury and two of them are one booking away from a suspension.”
