Brown: Injury doubt for hosts

Brown: Injury doubt for hosts

Jordan Brown is an injury doubt for Steve Davis' League Two play-off chasers Crewe.

Former West Ham youngster Brown, who has made seven appearances since joining the Railwaymen in February, sustained a leg injury in a heavy challenge during Tuesday's 2-1 reserve win over Wigan.

The left-back is Davis' only significant concern as his side look to maintain a 13-match unbeaten run that leaves them outside the top seven on goal difference alone.

Defenders Matt Tootle and Carl Martin featured for the reserves in midweek having recently recovered from thigh injuries, along with Max Clayton (foot), Lee Bell and Shaun Miller - the latter two taking the opportunity to build match sharpness.

Victory at the weekend would move Alex to within a point of the Robins, who currently lie sixth.

Meanwhile, Cheltenham welcome back defender Sido Jombati.

Jombati has completed a three-match ban incurred by a red card picked up in the defeat at Southend recently, and he could come straight back into the Robins' starting XI in place of Keith Lowe.

Manager Mark Yates has a fully-fit and suspension-free squad at his disposal for the trip to Alex, and the Cheltenham boss is hoping to avenge what he branded his worst day in management - an 8-1 annihilation at Gresty Road last season.

Yates' side can make sure of a play-off place with a victory, but form is not on their side. The Gloucestershire outfit have lost each of their last five matches away from home.
