Matt Tootle is expected to get a first start of the season against Carlisle United tomorrow evening.

“He is an important member of the squad and now he has a chance to stake his claim” – Steve Davis

A substitute in recent games, the 21-year-old appears set to replace on loan Chuks Aneke following his sending-off on his full debut at Stevenage. The Arsenal teenager is now facing a three-match ban.

“We are short of one or two in midfield and up front but this will enable us to play Toots in there at Carlisle,” manager Steve Davis confirmed to Crewe’s official website. “He is an important member of the squad and now he has a chance to stake his claim.”

Tootle already has some experience in a midfield role having featured there in the Wembley play-off final victory against Cheltenham Town back in May.
