Lowery Has 'Chance' Of Being Involved This Weekend

7 February 2020

Crewe Alexandra manager, David Artell has revealed that his creative midfielder, Tom Lowery, has a 'chance' of being involved in some capacity tomorrow against Oldham. The diminutive central midfielder has missed last weekend’s 2-1 win at Walsall and was only used as an impact substitute against Leyton Orient after having an injection to ease some inflammation around his pelvis.

A scan revealed no further damage and the Holmes-Chapel based youngster, who has scored five goals this season is ‘progressing well’, says the boss.

David told the club’s official website: “Tom is doing really well. He is coming on and progressing well. We will see how he is after yesterday and we will see how he is after today.

“It is really good news on him and a few others in the treatment room but like I said earlier in the week, we don’t want to rush anyone back and then lose them for a number of weeks because we should have given them an extra game or two to be right.

“It is about knowing how many minutes they can do and making sure we get that balance right. Some may be able to play 45 minutes, some an hour and another 75 and knowing that will only benefit them and us.

“Hopefully, we will get that right with the ones coming back from injury but it does look healthier in the treatment room and Owen and Liam deserve great credit for that.”
