lawrence5On loan defender Dennis Lawrence will not feature for Crewe Alexandra in tomorrow's FA Cup tie with Ebbsfleet United after hs parent club Swansea City did not grant permission.

First team coach Steve Holland has been in constant contact with Swansea boss Roberto Martinez over the possibility of the Trinidad and Tobago International featuring for us in the first round - but as Lawrence could feature later on in the competition as the Championship side enter at the third round stage they did wish for the 34-year-old to be cup-tied.

Steve told us: "Roberto did everything in his power to try and accomodate us and that is why the decision has takne so long to come. With Dennis only on loan with us for another two months, Swansea understandably do not want him to be cup-tied as they do enter the competition until the third round."
