Davis wary of Oldham threat

Crewe Alexandra aim to recover from a first defeat in six games when Oldham Athletic provide their opposition at Gresty Road this evening.

"They are a decent side, better than their league position suggests" - Steve Davis
However, the hosts have further injury problems with wingers Byron Moore (ankle) and Ryan Colclough (fractured jaw) the latest ruled out after suffering knocks during the weekend defeat at MK Dons. That pair join midfielder Abdul Osman (ankle) on the sidelines.

But at least on loan Arsenal teenager Chuks Aneke returns from suspension while Max Clayton has recovered from a dead-leg. There was also a welcome comeback for joint-leading scorer Mathias Pogba as a second-half substitute at Stadium MK.

Despite their lowly status, Alex chief Steve Davis was certainly taking nothing for granted and instead expecting another stern challenge to come from the Latics.

"We have had Oldham watched and have reports on them and they are a decent side, better than their league position suggests," he told Crewe's official website. "Dario went to watch them on Saturday and we know they work hard, are organised and they will be fighting to move up the league."

Indeed Athletic have won only one league game so far this season and currently find themselves in a dreaded relegation place.

At the weekend they allowed fellow strugglers Coventry City a first league victory of the season after conceding a late winner at Boundary Park. That latest defeat placed even more pressure on manager Paul Dickov as his side left the pitch to loud boos from disgruntled fans.
