Davis up­beat over Atkin­son

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

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.”
