Published Add your comment

Crewe defender Mat Mitchel-King will return to full training on Tuesday after recovering from a head injury sustained in the 1-1 draw at Burton.

The 27-year-old was replaced by Matt Tootle two minutes before half-time after a clash of heads but boss Dario Gradi insisted it was just a precautionary measure.

Gradi told the club's official website: "We don't take risks with head injuries. We are always careful and I didn't think twice about putting Matt (Tootle) on."

He added: "He (King) was feeling groggy after getting a knock on his head. The safety of our players is paramount and that was the case on Saturday.

"Mat will be fine. I am sure he will be OK to train."
