Max Clayton: Back in contention

Max Clayton: Back in contention

Team news for Easter Monday's League One clash between Crewe and Colchester at Gresty Road.

Max Clayton could return to the Crewe squad for the first time since November.

Clayton has been out with an ankle problem but the teenage striker has slowly been building for a return. It would be a timely comeback too given top scorer Chuks Aneke is in the midst of a three-match suspension.

Alex boss Steve Davis has concerns over Abdul Osman (knee), who is likely to remain sidelined along with defender Harry Davis (knee) and forward Ryan Colclough (stomach).

Crewe go into Monday's match one place and two points above the relegation zone.

Colchester manager Joe Dunne will select from an unchanged squad for the trip to Gresty Road to face relegation rivals Crewe.

Sanchez Watt (quad) will continue to play through the pain barrier but Dunne could opt to make changes elsewhere. Craig Eastmond had to make do with a place on the substitute's bench against Oldham on Friday on his return from a two-match suspension and he will hope to come into Dunne's thinking.

The likes of Ryan Dickson, Clinton Morrison, Tosin Olufemi, Dominic Vose and Drey Wright are also options for the U's boss.

Colchester and Crewe both go into the game level on 46 points - two points above the relegation zone.
