Gloves are off at Gresty Road

Crewe Alexandra go in search of a second home victory this week when mid-table Yeovil Town arrive at Gresty Road.

"If we can play like we can then we believe we can cause any opponent problems" - Steve Davis
The Alex are unlikely to risk highly-rated young striker Max Clayton after missing the midweek win against Swindon Town due to a groin injury.

Teenager Ollie Turton is on standby for a full league debut as midfielders Abdul Osman (ankle) and Andy Bond (groin) are both doubtful.

Otherwise, forwards AJ Leitch-Smith (ankle) and Ryan Colclough (jaw) were already ruled out for the home side.

"It should be an entertaining game and another home game in front of our crowd will make for a good atmosphere," manager Steve Davis told Crewe's official website. "The fans have been fantastic of late and have really got behind the lads."

He added: "If we can play like we can then we believe we can cause any opponent some problems and that is what we will aim to do."

The Glovers hope that defender Jamie McAllister and striker James Hayter are both fit to play after slight knocks.
