Injured Players Getting Closer To Return

17 August 2018

Boss keeps his team selection close to his chest as he waits on a possible return of some of his injured players.

David Artell has revealed that the club’s injured players are progressing nicely, but he wouldn’t be drawn into whether any of them would be fit and available for tomorrow’s fixture against MK Dons.

Shaun Miller has made a successful return to training after missing the first three matches of the season with a knee injury and Crewe have been without George Ray (ribs) and Chris Porter (groin) for the last two fixtures. Midfielder Paul Green missed the mid-week cup clash with Fleetwood Town after suffering a slight calf strain in the build-up. Callum Ainley replaced him in the 1-1 draw.

Artell told “The injured players are getting there. Some are closer than others. Some are very close, some we don’t know about. If they fit then they will be considered for selection like everyone else.

“Shaun has trained this week so that has been a boost. We will see where he is. Just because he has trained, doesn’t mean he will automatically be ready for the intensity of playing games again. We thought he had a fracture of the knee when he first did it, so that is something you don’t rush.

“When he is ready, then he will be considered for selection because I think every team in League Two would miss a Shaun Miller. “
