Crewe Alexandra are targeting a league double over fierce rivals Port Vale this weekend.

“We’ve had a fantastic run and we’re playing much better than we were” – Steve Davis

The Railwaymen already triumphed in their home meeting back in September courtesy of goals from George Ray and Vadaine Oliver in a 2-1 victory.

“There’s nothing better than this type of game to get yourself going again,” manager Steve Davis told the Crewe & Nantwich Guardian. “Our main focus is to get three points, we’ve had a fantastic run and we’re playing much better than we were. That gives you hope that we can get something from all the remaining games.

“That’s how it’s going to be now, there will be little moments in the matches that will decide them,” he added. “Hopefully those things will go for us like they have recently.”

Skipper Matt Tootle (ankle) remains out and fellow defender Jon Guthrie (knee) awaits scans after suffering a knock at Notts County. But on loan midfielder Jamie Ness should overcome a dead-leg.
