Crewe Alexandra Vs Wycombe Wanderers, Sat 8 Jan 2011

Published Add your comment

Crewe boss Dario Gradi is likely to name an unchanged team for the visit of Wycombe - unless Byron Moore can regain fitness.

Moore missed the victory over Shrewsbury with an ankle knock and Alex are monitoring the winger`s recovery.

Joel Grant, who made a first league start since the end of October at Greenhous Meadow, will be the man to drop out should Moore make it.

Antoni Sarcevic is fit again after his ankle problem and is likely to be joined on the bench by fellow midfielder Danny Shelley, defenders Harry Davis and Adam Dugdale and striker Nick Powell.

Last season`s top scorer Calvin Zola has recovered from his knock but will not be considered for a return to the first team until he has more training under his belt.

Wycombe midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is set to return.

The 37-year-old scored the winner at Cheltenham last weekend but was rested for Monday's 1-0 win over Gillingham which saw the Chairboys climb to third in the table.

Swansea loanee Scott Donnelly could make his debut.

The creative midfielder made his name under Wanderers boss Gary Waddock at Aldershot but was an unused substitute against the Gills as he began his loan spell at Adams Park.

Striker Jon-Paul Pittman remains a long-term absentee as he continues his recovery from a ruptured knee tendon which has kept him out since September.

Winger Josh Parker (foot) remains the only other long-term injury concern and the midfielder will not feature for at least six weeks.
