Crewe Alexandra: Injured Harry Bunn has not been forgotten, says Steve Davis
LONG-TERM injury victim Harry Bunn has not been forgotten at Crewe, says manager Steve Davis.
Forward Bunn, aged 19, impressed for the Railwaymen on loan from Manchester City before extensive damage to the lateral ligaments in his right knee in September.
The injury is severe enough to cast doubts whether the teenager, who is receiving treatment at the Premier League champions, will play again this season.
His contract is up with his parent club in the summer and Davis has indicated he would like the nimble front man back in South Cheshire.

Davis said: "He came to our game last Saturday and we got him in the dressing room with the lads again.
"He's had his first operation which went all right and he's got another this week to repair his cruciate.
"He looked quite bubbly and positive about it and it nice to see him back down here.
"Physio Rob Sharp keeps in contact with him and we all hope he is back playing football as soon as possible.
"He's out of contract in the summer and we will stay in touch with him."
Crewe recovered from going a goal down to beat Carlisle United 2-1 after extra-time in the FA Youth Cup thanks to Brandon Moores' leveller and a Billy Waters pile-driver.
Davis and his assistant Neil Baker were interested observers and Waters in particular might have done enough to earn a place in the senior squad in the not too distant future.
The manager is preparing his side to host Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup first round tomorrow and may be tempted to name the young midfielder on the bench.
Davis said: "Billy's done very well in the under-21s and we were looking to see what he could produce in the FA Youth Cup."
