Donaldson ready for Stanley trip

23 December 2010 11:00
Leading scorer Clayton Donaldson will be fit for Crewe`s trip to Accrington. The 11-goal striker was a doubt for last weekend`s postponed game against Bradford with a hamstring problem. Alex boss Dario Gradi must decide whether to bring back influential midfielder Lee Bell. Danny Shelley was drafted in against Stockport while Bell served a one-match ban. With Shelley marking an impressive first start of the season with a stunning free-kick goal in the 3-3 draw, Gradi could find it difficult to return to his regular midfield trio. That could mean either Luke Murphy or Ashley Westwood being axed to accommodate Bell, who had been an ever-present in the team before the game at Edgeley Park. Antoni Sarcevic (ankle) and Carl Martin (shin) have resumed training following injuries. Gradi wants Martin to play in a reserve-team game before recalling the defender for first-team action.
