Match Preview

No worries for Alex Crewe have no new problems ahead of the visit of Macclesfield. Not one for major changes, boss Dario Gradi could stick with the side that drew with Oxford on Saturday. Defender Mat Mitchel-King and forward Byron Moore lead they way for recalls should Gradi opt to make a change. Meanwhile, Bartek Fogler has extended his short-term deal at Alex. The Polish keeper, who has yet to make an appearance for the club, has impressed in reserve-team games and in training. He will stay at Gresty Road until at least the end of October. That is despite the return of Steve Phillips to full training. Phillips missed all summer after undergoing surgery on both shoulders but is now back in action with the youth team. However, it may still be several weeks before the former Bristol City keeper is ready for competitive games. Macclesfield manager Gary Simpson will be without Ricky Sappleton and Richard Butcher. Sappleton remains unavailable as he continues his recovery from a long-standing knee injury, while the game comes too soon for Butcher who is close to a return following a similar problem. Midfielder Lewis Chalmers started only his second game for the Silkmen following his summer move in the 3-1 win over Torquay on Saturday and is expected to retain his place as Paul Bolland continues to struggle with a groin problem. Striker Vinny Mukendi made his return as a second-half substitute against the Gulls following a knee injury and he will be pushing for a starting place along with defender Sam Wedgbury who also came off the bench at the weekend.

Match Report

Alex leave it late Substitute AJ Leitch-Smith grabbed a last-gasp leveller for Crewe as they extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a 1-1 draw against Macclesfield. Tyrone Barnett's second-half header had given the visitors an unlikely lead but Leitch-Smith crashed in from 12 yards with three minutes to go. The visitors almost scored with their first attack when Barnett stole into the box, but goalkeeper Rhys Taylor did well to push his shot around the post. Crewe settled down to dominate and Town's Izak Reid had to pinch Joel Grant's cross off the foot of Shaun Miller as the striker was poised to side-foot home. Ashley Westwood then shot wide before Lee Bell's well-struck free-kick was deflected to safety off the head of Carl Tremarco. Crewe striker Shaun Miller saw his snapshot well saved by Jose Veiga after the break before he fired a first-time volley from Matt Tootle's pinpoint cross over the crossbar. But the Silkmen took the lead when Barnett headed Lewis Chalmers` 52nd-minute corner into the roof of the net. Crewe almost replied instantly but Clayton Donaldson's turn and shot came back off a post. Barnett thought he had doubled his account when he glanced in a deep cross but his goal was ruled out for a tug on a defender. Westwood fired another shot over for Crewe before Taylor had to be alert to deny Barnett a second from 10 yards. But Leitch-Smith side-stepped Tremarco before drilling in his second goal for the club.
