The Alex boss takes his charges to Plainmoor this weekend in a crucial tussle for both promotion-chasing sides, with Crewe having jumped into the final play-off spot on the back of a superb 14-match unbeaten run.

Davis admits his side's 3-0 home defeat to Torquay was their worst performance of the season, coming in what was Dario Gradi's last league game in charge of the club.

"We were very poor that day and are a much better team now," Davis said. "That is to take nothing away from Torquay, who played very well.

"Torquay can expect a different Crewe Alexandra side on Saturday and we are going there to get the points we need."

Davis will assess Nick Powell and Dave Artell on Friday as the influential pair both struggle with hamstring complaints.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
