Crewe Alexandra could be without keeper Clayton Ince for the rest of the season.Crewe Alexandra could be without goalkeeper Clayton Ince for the rest of the season.
Ince has broken a finger and could be missing from The Railwaymen's plans for the remainder of the campaign.
The Trinidad & Tobago shot-stopper suffered the injury in training and X-rays confirmed the break.
The Championship club expect the 32-year-old to require between six and eight weeks before he is ready to play again.
If Ince recovers ahead of schedule, he may be able to return before the season is out but, with Crewe seemingly safe from relegation, manager Dario Gradi may opt to take no risks.
In Ince's absence, Ben Williams will be handed another chance to stake a claim to be Crewe's number one on a long-term basis.
The former Manchester United keeper started the season in the team but lost his place to Ince in October.
Williams will be between the posts for Saturday's game at home to Wolves, with Stuart Tomlinson recalled from a loan spell at Stafford Rangers to provide cover.
