Crewe Alex: Aneke looking for a different challenge to make his mark at Crewe
CHUKS Aneke has vowed to learn from his "silly challenge" at Stevenage and repay Crewe's patience with more strikes like the wonder goal which opened his account for the club at the weekend.
The loan signing from Arsenal was sent off on his full Alex debut for a lunge on Anthony Grant last month which earned him a three-game suspension.
He returned to the first-team last week, and then curled in a screamer in a 2-1 home win over Hartlepool as Crewe secured their first victory since the start of September.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder will be looking to add to that tally this evening at Shrewsbury.

And Aneke, whose loan runs until the middle of next month, hopes to stay around for longer, too.
"I've settled in really well and I'm enjoying my time here," he said.
"The staff and the players are welcoming. I'm delighted the club extended my loan and the longer I'm here the better.
"The red card at Stevenage was a silly challenge. I know I can't afford to make silly decisions like that and I'll try my best never to do anything like that again.
"Maybe I was over-enthusiastic because I wanted to make a good impression, but I've moved on now and I want to play games and win games for Crewe.
"I was glad to score, but the most important thing was to get the three points. I'm glad to get off the mark and hopefully I will get a few more goals."
Modest Aneke, when pushed, admitted he was pleased to find the net with such a pearler.
"I guess it's something I have in my locker," he said. "I was just glad it went in because it was really important for us to get back in the game."
