Gradi to stick with winning formula

23 August 2010 02:00
Crewe are likely to be unchanged for the visit of Ipswich in the Carling Cup second round. Alex go into the tie on the back of a morale-boosting 7-0 league victory over Barnet on Saturday. Calvin Zola missed that game with a knee injury and last season`s top goal scorer is likely to remain sidelined, meaning Joel Grant will keep his place in the team. Manager Dario Gradi told the club`s official website: "I don`t think I will be making any changes to the team after Saturday. "It is not often you have a result like that and if I was to leave anyone out after a 7-0 win, I would expect them to be knocking on my door." Youngster Nick Powell, a substitute at the weekend, is unavailable as he is away on international duty with the England Under-17 squad.
