Crewe boss Dario Gradi admits managing hot prospect Nick Powell is proving a tough challenge.

The 17-year-old, who has been linked with a move to a host of Premier League clubs, is at Gradi's disposal again this weekend after completing a three-match ban for a reckless tackle on Shrewsbury's Sean McAllister.

Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke: "He's different and to know what's going on in his mind is beyond me.

"When he does ridiculous chips and flicks I tell him 'don't think you're going to score like that'."

However, Gradi feels he is making headway with Powell's development and added: "I think he has now accepted what I've said to him about his future will depend on him scoring goals, I think he understands that now.

"Instead of ridiculous and outrageous shots, he's actually trying to put the ball in the back of the net which he has the ability to do, there's no doubt about that."
