Walton: On loan at Crewe
Caretaker Crewe boss Dario Gradi has been pleased with the attitude of loan duo Simon Walton and Aman Verma.
Dario Gradi has been pleased with the attitude of loan duo Simon Walton and Aman Verma since taking over as caretaker manager at Crewe.
The midfielders, on loan from Plymouth and Leicester respectively, were brought to the club by former boss Gudjon Thordarson.
Walton will remain at Gresty Road until the end of the season while Verma's spell is set to end on 10th November.
Both players have struggled to make an impact since the Icelander left almost three weeks ago, but Gradi insists they will get their chance in the side if they continue to work hard in training and reserve-team matches.
"The attitude of the loan players has been fine. They want to battle for a place and I have told them they will be judged like everyone else. They will go into the team on merit and it's up to them to grab their chance," Gradi told the club's official website.
"I'm sure they will get a chance to show what they can do because those lads ahead of them won't be able to play in every game.
"Simon is keen to learn and trains well. He is a very talented footballer who has been around for a few years but is still relatively young. Aman I don't know much about but he has been fine. He has come from a non-League background and he is still learning."
