Crewe Alexandra may have rattled in an impressive five goals past Hartlepool United in the Capital One Cup at the weekend, but manager Steve Davis was reserving some of his praise for at the other end of the pitch.

"He made some good saves, one fantastic save and his distribution was first class" - Steve Davis
Goalkeeper Alan Martin kept a clean sheet on his senior debut for the club while covering for sidelined regular Steve Phillips, who is currently out of action with a knee injury.

And now Martin, who signed a short-term six-month deal in the summer with instructions to go out and prove himself, is determined to do exactly that.

"He made some good saves, one fantastic save and his distribution was first class as well," Davis told Crewe's official website. "He came for crosses and took the pressure of the back players and he did exactly what I asked of him. He is determined to do well."
