Alex waiting on Ikpeazu

Last Updated: Fri, 24 Jan 2014 08:37

Crewe are hopeful on-loan striker Uche Ikpeazu can feature against Tranmere at Prenton Park.

The Watford loanee missed the midweek win over MK Dons after failing a late fitness test because of an ankle injury, yet the Alex remain hopeful he can play a part on the Wirral.

Boss Steve Davis also has a concern over fellow striker Vadaine Oliver (hip), while long-term injuries to Ryan Colclough (stomach) and Max Clayton (ankle) mean the Railwaymen are particularly short in that department.

Defender Olllie Turton could come into the reckoning, having been back in full training following a knee injury, while last season's top scorer Mathias Pogba continues his return from a knee injury, although he has still yet to start a game this season.
