Davis makes contingency plans

Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis will bring in further loan cover if midfielder Abdul Osman is declared unfit.

"I do have some players in mind that we could move on" - Steve Davis
Osman suffered a knock in the weekend draw against Leyton Orient and with on loan Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke already suspended for the game with MK Dons on Saturday, Davis is running short of options in midfield.

"I do have some players in mind that we could move on and I will make those calls today to cover ourselves there," he told Crewe's official website.

Meanwhile, Davis revealed he had been offered another striker on loan. But with joint-leading scorer Mathias Pogba on the way back, as well as Aneke returning from his three-match ban after the weekend, he won't be pursuing that particular option.

"We were offered a centre forward this morning who would have interested us but with Pogba and Aneke back after Saturday, we will have four or five forwards available again," Davis added.
