Steve Davis: Crewe Alexandra players 'need a brain rest'
Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis has welcomed a two-week break for his side following their 4-0 loss at Colchester United in League Two.
Already out of the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Checkatrade Trophy, Crewe do not play again until 10 December.
"Some of the players definitely need a bit of a brain rest," 51-year-old Davis told BBC Radio Stoke.
"It gives us a chance to get three of the lads back fit, who we should have available in a couple of weeks' time."
Crewe are 10th in the table after only two wins in their past 11 league games.
