The enforced stoppage of EFL fixtures until at least April 3rd is certainly understandably with the dangers of coronavirus spreading across the world.
Hopefully, the season will resume and we will be able to complete the outstanding fixtures across all levels.
The delay in matches will certainly help Crewe Alexandra’s injured duo, Tom Lowery and Eddie Nolan. The enforced break will allow those two injured players more recovery time in their quest to return if and when we resume.
David Artell told the club’s official website: “Tom is getting there. He is improving all the time and shouldn’t be too long. He has tried to rush back a little bit quickly because he is a great lad and just wants to be out there training and playing football.
“He wants to make himself available. He has trained twice and twice complained about feeling sore afterwards, so we will take more responsibility with that and make sure he is 100% right.
“It is a great trait to have, wanting to train and play but we have to be careful with him.
“Eddie is making steady progress every day. He has a chance of being back this season. He is coming along nicely and the feeling is coming back into his leg. The nerve was impinging on his back and connecting to the power he could generate in his leg.
“We will see how he goes but I am optimistic with the progress he is making.”
