Defender Kevin O’Connor has fully recovered from the injury he sustained in the recent Checkatrade Trophy game.
The on-loan Preston North End defender was stretched off just after the half an hour mark against Tranmere after a heavy collision. He was checked over at the local hospital on the night, but is now back in training for Alex.
Manager David Artell told the club website; “Kevin is fine. He was treated with a great deal of precaution because it was his head and possibly neck. He is fine and has been training. He will be okay and will be in contention for Saturday.”
Crewe travel to Cheltenham this Saturday, with both teams currently on seven points, although the Railwaymen have played one game fewer than Cheltenham.
The hosts will be unveiling new manager Michael Duff who took over this week, whereas Crewe will be hoping to end a run of three successive defeats on the road.
O’Connor’s return will be a big boost for David Artell, the 23-year old, who looks equally as comfortable at full back or wing back.
He’s also not in it for the money, having already won the Irish lottery. A professional footballer and a lottery winner, the lucky so and so!
