Injury Concerns Ahead Of Crunch Game

Four players are doubtful for Saturday's final home game against Oldham Athletic.

Captain Julien Baudet remains the biggest doubt after jarring his knee during last weekend's defeat to Bournemouth. The French defender looks set to miss the clash against his former club but he is set to see specialist Dai Rees this week in the hope of making himself available.

Steve Hollland admitted that they aren't quite sure how bad the injury actually is but remain hopeful.

'Julien jarred his knee on Saturday and we are sending him to see Dai Rees this morning for a scan. We are hoping it is not too severe and that he is available for the final game.' Holland told crewealex.net.

Danny Woodards is also looking unlikely to make the weekend. Woody has suffered with an ankle injury that has kept him out since the start of the month, but the good news is he has recently trained with the fitness coach. However, assistant manager Neil Baker says that Woodards will need to return to full training on Wednesday to be available for selection at the weekend.

Baker told The Sentinel: "Danny trained with the fitness coach yesterday, but we will need him to train with us by tomorrow if he is to be considered against Oldham."

Steve Holland also has the worry of a stomach bug doing the rounds at Reaseheath Training Ground. Tom Pope and Dean Morgan have both been struck down with the illness in the past week but both trained this morning, giving encouragement to the management.

Injured pair Michael O'Connor and Ben Rix have suffered from the same illness.

Meanwhile, Billy Jones has come through the week and a game against Bournemouth ok. The left back returned after a four month injury on Saturday successfully and will be available for selection this weekend.
