There is still a real challenge for exactly who will keep goal for Crewe Alexandra in the season's opener against Rotherham United next month, according to manager Steve Davis.

"We're in good shape in the goalkeeper department" - Steve Davis
Davis admits that Steve Phillips and Alan Martin are both equally strong candidates for the role while teenager Ben Garratt isn't far behind either.

"Steve fumbled for the goal we let in at Nantwich but otherwise has been fine. Al looked fine against Blackburn, too, although he wasn't really tested. His distribution is good," he told This is Staffordshire. "There's nothing in it really, those two are very well matched.

"Even Ben has been doing particularly well, so that makes it three who are hard to choose between. We're in good shape in the goalkeeper department," Davis continued. "It will be a decision I will leave up until just prior to the first game."
