Crewe Alexandra skipper Luke Murphy has every chance of playing at the top level of the game according to director of football Dario Gradi.

"When you put them in as young players you are never sure how they will do" - Dario Gradi
Murphy, 23, continues to be linked with a move following a very successful season in which he took over the captaincy in the wake of Ashley Westwood departure to Aston Villa last August.

"Luke has done very well and become the player that Steve Holland always thought he would," Gradi told Crewe's official website. "When you put them in as young players you are never sure how they will do. I wasn't as sure as Steve was but gave him his debut.

"Murph has gone on and improved, much in the same way Westy did," he added. "You have to keep on improving. Westy has done that."

Crewe Alexandra are now unbeaten in four games after a welcome 2-0 win over Rochdale.

Striker Marcus Haber put them in front on the half-hour when a corner wasn't properly cleared and Brad Inman doubled their lead just prior to half-time.

Ian Henderson earlier headed wide for the visitors but Haber made no mistake when turning in at the other end after George Cooper's corner was missed.

However, it needed goalkeeper Ben Garratt to respond as Peter Vincenti sought an equalise
