Crewe Alexandra striker AJ Leitch-Smith says it's occasions like tonight's at Coventry City that make you get into the game in the first place.

"It is a chance for us to go there and prove how good we can be" - AJ Leitch-Smith
The Alex contest the first-leg of their Johnstone's Paint Northern Area final against the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena, the first of two scheduled visits there this month.

And whoever eventually comes through over the two games can look forward to challenging either Leyton Orient or Southend United in the final at Wembley.

"It is a big game," Leitch-Smith told Crewe's official website. "There is over 30,000 fans there and it is a chance for us to go there and prove how good we can be. As a footballer you want to be involved in big games like these."

Leitch-Smith, 22, has only just returned to action following an extended absence with an ankle injury and came off the bench to score the winner against Scunthorpe United at the weekend.
