Alex Morris: ‘Striker’s Xbox injury sums up our luck’

2 October 2022

Alex Morris says the unusual reason Courtney Baker-Richardson was ruled out of Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Carlisle sums up Crewe Alexandra’s luck with injuries.

The club’s top-scorer, who has seven goals to his name already this season, had to sit out of the goalless draw due to a problem he suffered while playing Xbox.

The Manager, who is also without the services of Christopher Long (ankle), Callum Ainley (shoulder), Oliver Finney (ankle), and Charlie Colkett (hamstring), explained: “We hope it’s not too serious, we’ll know more on Monday.

“It’s an area of his body where is has had issues before, and it’s happened in an innocuous way, which is about right for us with injuries at the minute.

“He did it while he was playing on his Xbox, I think. He just dropped his leg on the sofa and tweaked it.

“There’s nothing we can do; he will have treatment and hopefully it has settled down by Monday.

"If it hasn’t, that’s not a good sign and it will need scanning to see if it is a reoccurrence of what he’s had previously.”

Morris added: “We have players missing who can make a difference, but they are not with us so we have to get on with it.

"The lads who are out there, are giving everything. It’s just we can’t change things up as much as we’d like due to a lack of numbers.”
