Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis says the red card given to full debutant Chuks Aneke changed the course of the game against Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium.

"I will have a look at it again on the way home to see if we will appeal it" - Steve Davis
At that point the visitors were ahead 2-1 after a couple of early strikes from AJ Leitch-Smith. Luke Freeman pulled one back before the break and home substitute Robin Shroot equalised after the Alex were reduced to ten-men.

Davis could decide to appeal against the decision to dismiss the teenager who would otherwise be subjected to a three-match ban.

"The sending off was the game changer," Davis admitted to Crewe's official website. "I thought that Chucks may have slipped more than anything and I will have a look at it again on the way home to see if we will appeal it. I didn't think it was malicious and I'm not sure his two feet left the ground. If we think we can appeal then we will."
