Westwood to return to Alex XI

14 January 2011 12:00
Ashley Westwood looks likely to return to the Crewe starting line-up when local rivals Port Vale visit Gresty Road. Westwood was replaced in midfield by fellow academy product Danny Shelley after picking up a knock during last weekend`s win over Wycombe. Shelley started the defeat at Torquay on Tuesday night and scored a superb free-kick, but boss Dario Gradi has dropped a strong hint that he will not keep his place in the team. "Danny scored a terrific free-kick, which got us back into the game. However, I won't be inclined to play him on Saturday because Westy will be available again," said Gradi. Westwood`s inclusion is likely to be the only change made by Gradi, meaning Shelley will probably be joined on the bench by Nick Powell, Calvin Zola, Joel Grant and Adam Dugdale.
