Davis upbeat over Atkinson
CREWE boss Steve Davis has moved to allay fears midfielder Chris Atkinson could miss the business end of the season.
The 22-year-old missed last weekend’s 5-0 home drubbing by MK Dons after suffering a knee injury in the warm-up.
Scans have revealed Atkinson has suffered medial ligament damage, but Davis is hopeful the absence will not be prolonged.
Davis said: “Chris got injured in the warm-up on Saturday and that is why he was replaced on the bench by Liam Nolan.
“He tweaked his medial ligament in his knee but we are hopeful that it is not too long. He is okay and we don’t think he will out too long.”
