CREWE FC boss Ian O'Reilly has warned that few of his players can be sure of their places for the trip to Tarporley Victoria tonight.

O'Reilly was angry at the manner of Saturday's defeat at Warrington, and said only keeper Steve Harding, midfielder Alan Brown and striker John Scarlett can be satisfied with their displays.

Everyone else is under threat. He said: 'We took the lead in the first minute, and that was it. You could write the rest on a postage stamp. They deserved to win, they were better than us on the day, but I would expect to beat them nine times out of 10.

'If you have eight players not performing at all, you can't expect to take anything from a game. I was annoyed. It was very, very poor.

'You can usually take something from every game, even a defeat, but there is nothing from Saturday. I will make changes because I mean business.'

Crewe's Division Two midweek game at Whitchurch was abandoned with score at 0-0 at half-time, due to torrential rain.

At Warrington, Alan Brown's first minute free kick was nodded on by Scarlett and a home defender handballed in the box. Danny Massey converted from the spot.

But an individual error in either half from Steve Parker contributed to the goals the visitors conceded, and they never looked likely to recover.

Crewe play their first match on the new surface at the Cumberland Arena on Saturday (3pm), when Fearnhead are the visitors.
