'Porter In Right Place To Score 50th Alex Goal'

3 November 2021

Boss not surprised that it was veteran Chris Porter back with another goal after Billy Sass-Davies superb assist at the far post.

Chris Porter was again in the right place at the right time to notch his 50th goal for Crewe Alexandra against Doncaster Rovers last night and one man who was not surprised was his manager.

Alex boss David Artell chose to select the experienced goalscorer ahead of Mikael Mandron for the visit of Richie Wellens’ Rovers side and Porter did his job again when taking full advantage of Billy Sass-Davies superb assist following Tom Lowery’s wicked delivery.

Porter’s 33rd minute header should have been the catalyst for another home win, but the Railwaymen were pinned back in first half stoppage time after being undone by a cross themselves and that is how the battle of the bottom finished at a tension filled Mornflake Stadium.

The Crewe boss said of Porter’s landmark goal: “Chris has scored some goals for us this season and I’m sure he will score some more. He is a goalscorer, it is as simple as that.

“Goalscorers have always got value, they have to and that is what he gives us. I have a lot of faith in Chris Porter, he has scored goals throughout his career and I’m sure he will want a few more to get to that 200 at least. “
