Match Preview

Gradi in attacking poser Crewe manager Dario Gradi faces a selection dilemma in attack ahead of the visit of Stevenage. Gradi could have 29-goal strike partnership Clayton Donaldson and Shaun Miller available again. Leading scorer Donaldson will come back into contention after serving a three-match ban, while Miller is pushing to return after a thigh injury. Gradi must decide whether to reinstate the pair or stick with the players that have been producing the goods in their absence. "It would be good to have both Shaun and Clayton back but the others have done fine," said Gradi. "I've been happy to see Byron Moore playing up front and Ajay Leitch-Smith did well against Gillingham last Saturday. "I always think Ajay is more likely to score than the others but I was happy with both their performances - maybe I need to find a way of playing all four of them." Stevenage boss Graham Westley could make changes as he looks to end a six-game winless streak. Westley dropped a trio of players for the midweek draw with Oxford following last Saturday's defeat at Shrewsbury. Chris Beardsley, Joel Byrom and Taiwo Atieno dropped out of the matchday squad with David Bridges, Ben May and Stacy Long coming in. But the changes had little effect as Boro were held to a goalless draw. Midfielder Darren Murphy is a definite absentee as he works his way back from an ongoing shoulder problem but May is now back from a minor knock. Stevenage have never played at Gresty Road, with the only meeting between the sides ending in a 1-1 draw in September.

Match Report

Laird strikes late on Scott Laird headed a late winner for Stevenage to snatch all three points in a 1-0 victory at Crewe. Laird headed home into the bottom corner from Jon Ashton's flick-on in the 87th minute. Crewe will feel aggrieved to have ended up empty-handed after Clayton Donaldson forced a fine save from Stevenage goalkeeper Chris Day on the stroke of half-time and Byron Moore hit the post with his shot from inside the penalty area just after the hour. Laird's late strike ended Boro's six-game winless streak but the match looked to be heading for a draw after the visitors dominated possession in a drab first half but failed to carve out any openings bar high and wide efforts from David Bridges and Craig Reid. Crewe were restricted to a 40-yard shot from Danny Shelley which flew inches wide. The youngster then had the Alex's first effort on target after 33 minutes but his daisy-cutter was easily held by keeper Chris Day.
