Crewe will be hoping to claim their first points of the new campaign at home to Walsall tomorrow.
Holland will be looking to get some confidence back into both the team and the support after last weeks 4-2 defeat at the hands of Carlisle.
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 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.
The player Walsall will miss the most will be striker Michael Ricketts who is serving a ban for violent conduct.
Walsall will be pleased to be coming here on the back of a win last weekend against Scunthorpe and will look to improve their recent away from.
This is a game that we should, and have to win, this has been reflected to the predictions in the Vital Crewe prediction league with the most common score being 2-1 to the Alex.
