Are the play-offs a possibility? Miller thinks so.

Are the play-offs a possibility? Miller thinks so.

Shaun Miller isn't discounting the possibility of the Railwaymen making the play-offs this season despite being 10 points off the pace.

Miller netted his sixth goal of the season in yesterday's 1-0 win at Vale park, securing the bragging rights from the local derby and denting Vale's play-off dreams in the process.

Confidence boosted, Miller now says that if the Alex can put a run together then there's nothing stopping us sneaking in to the top 7 come May.

Miller told BBC Sport: 'It's given us a great lift because Vale are looking to sneak into the play-offs.

'We've got quite a few more of those teams coming up and you never know if we can get on a good run.'


Whilst not an impossibility you would be hard pushed to find a Crewe fan with similar views.

With eight games remaining we would need a minimum of six wins before the end of the season to even stand a chance, with 8 wins on the trot still no guarantee of a top 7 spot.

It's a tough run of fixtures coming up with five of the eight still harbouring very realistic promotion hopes, including the likes of Rotherham, Bury and Shrewsbury. I think we'll be doing well to make the top half, never mind the play-offs.

It's nice that confidence is flowing in the changing rooms but one win against Port Vale doesn't make the season. Right now we've got to be aiming for a strong end to the season to take into the summer and build upon for 2010-2011.

Preview: Crewe vs Bolton XI

Well if this isn't a bit weird: I'm writing a preview for a Bolton match for Vital Crewe, having edited Vital Bolton for 18 months.

Anyway, I'm back and I'd like to start off by thanking Ross for his sterling work in the last few weeks while I've been away. He's run the site on his own and I think he's done a great job. Or at least I say he has...

Disappointingly, Bolton will not be bringing their first team as promised as they've opted to switch their reserve and first team fixtur
