Striker Decision Time

Striker Decision Time

Dario Gradi has spoken today of the need to sort out the future of strikers Gareth Taylor and Eddie Johnson.

Both are expected to return to Crewe this week and will no doubt be speaking to the club with regards to next season, and if it will be with Crewe Alex.

As reported previously here on Vital Crewe, EJ was set to sign a 2-year deal however news about this has gone quiet. Since arriving in South Cheshire the former United Striker scored 4 times in 23 games, and would no doubt be looking to improve on that.

Taylor is more doubtful in that he is seeking a 2 year contract. His agent is claiming that a number of clubs are interested in the former Forest man, who impressed with us during his loan spell. Questions regarding fitness, and the players age have led Crewe to offer him a one-year deal only.

Dario Said!
'I'm accepting the two players to be back this week at some point. If they come back and are willing to sign then great - but if they choice to go elsewhere then I think we have enough here to offer competition for places. I'm not particularly looking to replace them if they do move on. '

It'll be interesting to see what will happen if Taylor and Johnson don't stay, who Dario will look at playing upfront, in terms of senior strikers it would leave Varney, Rodgers and Higdon, with Manyard starting to push through.

There's a couple of youngsters at Norwich who've played for Englands under 21's who won't get many games for the canaries.

Crewe Alexandra managed to give supporters a long-awaited victory in their final home game of the season against Doncaster Rovers.

Davis happy with finale

Manager Steve Davis was happy and doubtless very relieved to witness Crewe Alexandra complete their home programme with a 3-1 victory against Doncaster Rovers.

Crewe recover for victory

Crewe Alexandra came from behind for a first win in sixteen games and to drag Doncaster Rovers down into League Two with them for next season.

Kick-off was delayed by half-an-hour due to a waterlogged playing surface and Tommy Rowe gave the visitors the lead through a deflected strike.

However, youngster Callum Ainley equalised with his first senior goal before the break and Marcus Haber and substitute Brad Inman added second-half efforts.
