Perry Ng will serve a one-match suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season yesterday evening. The centre-half was rather harshly cautioned for handball in stoppage time when the ball seemed to strike his hand from point blank range. Perry will miss the home game against Grimsby Town at the weekend.
Perry’s five cautions have come against Colchester, Carlisle, Lincoln, Bury and Yeovil Town.
It is a blow for Crewe Alexandra to lose one of their most consistent performers of the season thus far.
