Crewe set to appeal red card

Crewe boss Steve Davis admitted to feeling a sense of injustice

after loanee Chuks Aneke was dismissed on his full debut.

Davis’ side looked set to hand Stevenage their first league

defeat of the season after an opening 10 minutes which saw Ajay

Leitch-Smith net twice in quick succession.

However, Boro had other ideas and pulled one back before the

break through Luke Freeman before Aneke, on loan from Arsenal, was

dismissed for a lunge on Anthony Grant in the 73rd minute.

Less than 10 minutes later substitute Robin Shroot pounced to

fire home the equaliser.

But boss Davis was not angry with Aneke and revealed he will be

appealing the decision.

“Stevenage only really came into the game when Chuks got sent

off. I felt it was a slip rather than going in two footed,” said

Davis. “So we will have a look at that and see if we can appeal it

and get it rescinded. I didn’t think it was malicious.”
