Match Preview

Gradi ponders changes Crewe boss Dario Gradi has hinted he will make changes to his starting line-up in the home clash with Accrington. Gradi was unhappy with his side's performance during the 2-1 defeat to Oxford on Saturday and insisted changes are needed. He told the club's official website: "I may do something slightly different on Tuesday. I told Steve (Davis) about what I had in mind on the way back from Oxford. It's something we will discuss and debate." Striker AJ Leitch-Smith could be in line for a recall following his late consolation against the U's and could possibly partner 20-goal top-scorer Clayton Donaldson in attack. Full-back Matt Tootle is also pushing for a recall after returning to the squad following a virus, while midfielders Ashley Westwood and Danny Shelley are also options. Alex are currently four points off a play-off place. Accrington manager John Coleman has no new injury or suspension worries. Midfielder Charlie Barnett returned to first-team action as a late substitute in Saturday's 3-0 win over Port Vale having missing the previous three games with an ankle injury. Barnett is likely to be named among the replacements again due to the form of his replacement Sean McConville, who has impressed in recent weeks, netting the opener against Vale. Defender Leam Richardson will miss out again with an ongoing groin problem that has seen him miss the last eight matches. He is not expected to return for another couple of weeks. Stanley are closing in on the play-off places, sitting just three points off seventh spot with two games in hand on their rivals.

Match Report

Stanley denied in stalemate Accrington Stanley winger Sean McConville was denied what looked a clear goal as they had to settle for a point after a goalless draw at Crewe. The visitors were stunned when McConville's 13th-minute turn and shot came down off the crossbar and looked to have crossed the line only for linesman Andrew Hutchinson's flag to stay put. Stanley left frustrated after creating the best of the chances over 90 minutes but it was Crewe who started brightest with Clayton Donaldson and Ashley Westwood both having good efforts saved by Alex Cisak before Luke Joyce headed wide at the other end. Terry Gornell then span into the Crewe box and saw his close-range effort saved by Rhys Taylor while Danny Shelley should have put the Alex ahead but Cisak came out on top in their one-on-one. After the break the game swung from end to end as Donaldson drilled over for Crewe and Taylor tipped Andy Proctor's looping header over the bar before Joe Jacobson side-footed McConville's corner over the bar from 12 yards out. Ian Craney went close with a fine strike before referee David Coote waved away Crewe appeals for a penalty after Donaldson went down in the box under a challenge from Jacobson. Taylor produced a superb double stop to keep out Craney's shot and Jimmy Ryan's follow-up header before Artell hacked away on the line after Ryan turned and tried to hammer home at the third attempt. Substitute Rory Boulding almost won it for Stanley when he swivelled in the box but his dragged shot went the wrong side of the post.
