Technical Director Dario Gradi has told the club's official web-site that Dennis Lawrence has 'grown' on him after covering for the injured Julien Baudet in recent weeks.
Dario told crewealex.net: "Dennis has grown on me. I didn't see much of him because he had been injured or away with Trinidad but I have a lot of respect for him. The players have a lot of respect for him as well and I'm pleased we have him with us until the end of the season.
"He has great experience and has a calming influence on the other players.
