Crewe Alexandra has some injury issues ahead of their game against Grimsby Town on Saturday.

Indeed they will be missing a couple of players such as Eddie Nolan and Chris Porter. The manager said that the players would be facing a late fitness test to find out whether they can play in the game against Grimsby.

The Crewe Alexandra coach David Artell said that Chris Porter is a major doubt for the match as he has picked out some knocks in the previous game. The manager said that this is the reason why he did not play against Newcastle Under-21 team as he did not want the player to aggravate his injuries. He said that the medical team would assess him before the game to find out whether there is any risk in playing him.

On the other hand, Eddie Nolan played in the match against Newcastle despite having an injury, and David Artell said that this time they would have to assess him carefully. He said that the match against Grimsby Town would be a physical one and it is important that the players are at their peak in this game. Continue reading 'Crewe Alexandra injury issues'»

Crewe Alexandra FC have reportedly abandoned reported interests in former Manchester United star Wes Brown.

The 37-year old has been an object of speculation to join the Alex following his release by Blackburn. However, the assistant manager of the club Kenny Lunt revealed that the player reneged on a planned meeting.

“He was supposed to come in and speak to us. He never did come in. It would have been nice to sit down with him,” Lunt told BBC Radio Stoke.

“We’ve moved on and we’re now looking at different options. I wouldn’t say there’s no chance but we’ve got a list of players that we’re looking at,” he added.

On the other hand, Crewe Alex has confirmed that defender George Ray has agreed a two year deal with the club. the new contract would run until the summer of 2019. Ray has played at least 100 games for the club as at the final day of the last term. The 23-year old is expected to continue in his current capacity with the League Two side.

David Artell doesn’t think that there is no reason for Crewe Alexandra to remain motivated in the on-going season anymore.

It’s a certainty now that Crewe will not be one of the two teams to be getting demoted to national League as they have established a 9-point lead over Hartlepool which is at the second last position in the League Two standings.

That was Crewe’s main target when Artell had begun his stint as a coach earlier in the year, to avoid demotion and they have been able to fulfil that target.

Now what’s the motivation for them for the couple of games that they still have in hand? Is there any motivation at all? That’s the question because the results of those remaining games are going to be irrelevant.

If Crewe wins, they may move a couple of positions higher from their current position of 17th, but, that won’t have any real meaning because that will not bring them in contention for the title or anything. Continue reading 'David Artell comments on Crewe Alexandra'»
