Manager Quotes:

Jimmy Mullen

The Walsall boss spoke to Walsall`s office site about the game "Crewe always try to get the ball down and pass."

"I am expecting them to be energetic and athletic and have plenty of attacking options available to them with the likes of recent signings Clayton Donaldson, Calvin Zola and Anthony Elding."

"It's going to be another stern examination for us, but we go into the game on the back of a hard-earned victory over Scunthorpe United last weekend. I would like to think that we will take a good following with us for the short trip to Gresty Road and we will need each and every one of you in good voice as we face a side who, on their day, are as good as anyone at this level."

Crewe Alexandra Team News:

Crewe are likely to be missing McCready after he picked up an injury last Saturday against Carlisle.

Bopp and Zola are both still likely to be missing.

Crewe`s new signing Donaldson has been grated permission to play following his move from Hibs and is likely to go straight onto the bench.

Player to watch: Byron Moore

Walsall Team News:
