Teenage ace Max Clayton was only withdrawn after rather understandably tiring during the second-half of the weekend draw with Tranmere Rovers.

"I just thought Max was tiring a bit and we needed some fresh legs" - Steve Davis
Clayton managed to last for around seventy minutes until being replaced by Matt Tootle as the two sides remained scoreless in a tight encounter at Gresty Road.

That followed him appearing for an hour for England Under-19s in their defeat to Germany in Hamburg on Thursday night.

"He knew he had been in a game against Tranmere," manager Steve Davis told Crewe's official website. "It was more cut and thrust at a higher tempo. I just thought Max was tiring a bit and we needed some fresh legs and that is why I changed it."
