Bingham and Saunders out. Ainley doubtful.
Crewe Alexandra will be without Billy Bingham and Callum Saunders (both hamstring) for the visit of Cheltenham Town this weekend. Both are making considerable progress but are unlikely to feature for at least a fortnight.
Callum Ainley is also rated as a doubt after he received a hefty knock on his ankle during our Cheshire Senior Cup tie on Tuesday evening. Ainley had to be stretched off in the 1-0 win over Stalybridge Celtic.
