Crewe Alexandra goalkeeper Alan Martin came in for special praise from manager Steve Davis following a first win of the season against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

"We have been waiting for those match winning type saves from him" - Steve Davis
The Scot managed to deny John-Louis Akpa Akpro from giving the visitors the lead before Ryan Colclough earned their opponents a narrow first-half advantage - one that he later added to.

Rovers were also hit by the early sending-off of Danny Holmes for a second cautionable offence. The busy Akpa Akpro did later grab them a consolation.

"There a very small margins in football that can swing a game either way and Alan's save was one of those moments," Davis admitted to Crewe's official website. "It prevented us going behind and minutes later they were down to ten men and a goal down.

"We have been waiting for those match winning type saves from him," he added. "He hasn't produced them this season but he did on this occasion. That is what we know he is capable of."

Anyway, I'm back and I'd like to start off by thanking Ross for his sterling work in the last few weeks while I've been away. He's run the site on his own and I think he's done a great job. Or at least I say he has...

Disappointingly, Bolton will not be bringing their first team as promised as they've opted to switch their reserve and first team fixtur
