Crewe boss Dario Gradi is expecting on-loan Leicester defender Harry Worley to be an able replacement for injured skipper Mat Mitchel-King.The 21-year-old will come in for Mitchel-King, who has suffered ankle ligament damage, for the game against Bournemouth on Saturday. [LNB]"He's got a lot of potential, we've just got to polish him I think," Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke. [LNB]"He's got lots of raw ability, he just need to make better decisions." [LNB]Worley has made 13 appearances since joining the Alex in August, but was forced to miss three months of action because of an ankle injury. [LNB]He told BBC Radio Stoke that his return to the team is not in ideal circumstances. [LNB]"Obviously you want to get back into the team on merit, but if I'm back in the team because of an injury, then so be it," said Worley. [LNB]"If they didn't rate me here, they wouldn't have wanted me to sign until the end of the season. Now obviously I've got to stake a claim for a place in the team."
