Match Preview

Alex waiting on duo Crewe defenders Harry Davis and Matt Tootle remain major doubts for the npower League Two trip to Northampton. Davis suffered a dead leg in the early stages of Saturday's 1-0 win over Hereford and Tootle missed the match with a thigh strain. While boss Steve Davis was encouraged by the defensive duo's progress earlier this week they are both struggling to be involved at Sixfields. Jordan Brown is set to continue at left-back after making his full debut against the Bulls and penning an extended deal with the Railwaymen until the end of the season this week. Carl Martin (thigh) misses out once more as Alex chase a fifth consecutive win, but Steve Davis is wary of the challenge Aidy Boothroyd's side will pose. "We have been in good form, but so have they," he told Crewe's official website. "We are two of the in-form teams in the league and Aidy has done a great job because they have been in the bottom two this season." A change in goal will be necessary for Northampton. On-loan keeper Matt Duke was recalled by fellow League Two strugglers Bradford this week, with the Bantams' regular stopper Jon McLaughlin suspended for at least three games as a result of the red card he received in the mass brawl after their home defeat to Crawley on Tuesday night. Neal Kitson, who was on the bench against Plymouth last Saturday, or Freddy Hall will replace Duke. Leading scorer Adebayo Akinfenwa and on-loan defender Blair Adams are back to full fitness so boss Aidy Boothroyd has no injury concerns. Akinfenwa returned from an ankle injury as a second-half substitute during the goalless stalemate at home to Plymouth. "Bayo is fighting fit and he's raring to go as is everybody else," said Boothroyd. "Bayo was fit enough to start last Saturday but I just felt when you have got a player who is 85% fit and with a lot of games coming up and having won previously without him it was the right decision to have him on the bench. Blair Adams is back in training after his knock and he should be okay."
