Made a big one-on-one save early, offside but he wasn’t to know. Otherwise largely untested but he was excellent claiming crosses.
Recovered from loose early pass to gift a chance to defend solidly and prove a threat in other box, almost nodding late winner.
Another top display from the skipper, who has been solid of late and instrumental in recent clean sheets. Also so very nearly won it.
Always seems to use the ball well and did so again with more calm and composed defending. Long throw came to little this time.
One of his best Town displays. Everywhere for his side both going forward and at the back. Goal-saving block and one strike cleared. Stunning delivery.
Cotterill felt he was the star man. Davis was everywhere in midfield again, scrapping and snapping at ankles, putting out fires.
Another creative and busy display in the middle of the park. Never afraid to stick a foot in and his passing and delivery is so cultured.
Continued his recent trend of excellent form. Appears to have clicked into gear similar to last season with his driving runs and tireless workload.
A threat again. Some excellent delivery from his left flank. His confidence is in a good place, now regularly beating his man.
Typically put in such a shift for the cause and went close on a couple of occasions. One skilful flick and one tame strike snatched.
Not the goals he’s enjoyed of late but still very effective and a thorn in Crewe’s side. Won his headers, pinched the ball with his press, led the line and poked just wide.
