Pogba closing in on return

Last Updated: Fri, 20 Dec 2013 10:56

Crewe hope to have last season's top scorer Mathias Pogba back at some point over the festive period, though he is expected to miss the clash with Shrewsbury.

While this clash may be too soon for Pogba, who has not appeared this term because of a knee injury, boss Steve Davis is confident the striker can play a part in the near future.

Davis, who also has forward Vadaine Oliver back from suspension, is likely to start with teenager Ben Garratt in goal again due to injuries to loanee Neil Etheridge (thigh), Steve Phillips (shoulder) and Alan Martin's illness.

Teenager Ryan Colclough (stomach) is still missing, as is striker Max Clayton (ankle) and defender Ollie Turton (knee).
