New signing set to miss out
Latest signing Anthony Grant was not expected to be involved as Crewe Alexandra take on Blackburn Rovers in their opening friendly at Gresty Road this evening (kick-off 7.30pm).
The 26-year-old midfielder joined the Railwaymen from Stevenage yesterday but is still working on his fitness. He is more likely to be considered in forthcoming games against Chester and Stafford Rangers.
Defender Harry Davis is already a doubt for tonight after suffering a dead-leg at Newcastle Town, and striker AJ Leitch-Smith is another likely to miss out with a groin problem. Meanwhile, Gregor Robertson (Achilles) and trialist Luke Giverin (knee) remain sidelined.
But striker Mathias Pogba and defender Adam Dugdale should both be in action, alongside returning wingers Byron Moore and Ryan Colclough.
