CREWE Alexandra man­ager Steve Davis in­sists the re­turn from in­jury of Lauri Dalla Valle is like a new sign­ing for the strug­glers.

Fin­nish striker Dalla Valle scored three goals in Crewe’s fi­nal five games last sea­son, to keep them in League One, but the 24year-old has seen his cur­rent cam­paign ru­ined by an an­kle in­jury picked up in Novem­ber.

“As a kid, he’s been pro­lific, wher­ever he’s been, and I think he can score at any level,” Davis said.

“He per­se­veres and keeps get­ting into po­si­tions.

“It’s good to have him back.

“Lauri will rely on his nat­u­ral in­stincts to be in the right place at the right time.”
