Crewe's JPT tie to go ahead

Crewe expect Tuesday's JPT clash with Bradford to go ahead after announcing the Gresty Road pitch would not be inspected.

The playing surface was covered overnight to protect it from sub-zero temperatures in the Cheshire area and the club has confirmed the northern area semi-final will kick-off at 7.30pm as planned.

Victory over the Bantams would take Alex to within two games of a return to Wembley - the scene of last season's League Two play-off final triumph.
