David Artell says that the club’s medical staff will continue to monitor defender Olly Lancashire.
The centre half has a sore Achilles tendon and he didn’t travel to Carlisle at the weekend but the Crewe Alexandra boss says that they will take every precautionary measure to make sure that we don’t lose the former Swindon man for a lengthy period of time.
Lancashire, 30, who joined the club in the summer from Swindon has made 10 appearances this season and he had to serve a one match suspension following his red card late on against Walsall.
The Crewe boss told the club’s official website: “Olly has been struggling with a niggle in his Achilles. We are monitoring it and treating and he is having massages.
“We are looking to keep him fit in case we need him and not injury him and be without him for four, five, six weeks.
“We don’t want him to miss a large part of the season and our first objective is to see if we can nurse him through it. If that doesn’t work and he needs a few weeks off then so be it.”
