Everton's Garbutt admits Cheltenham must watch Man Utd target Powell

Cheltenham's on-loan Everton fullback Luke Garbutt says they're wary facing Crewe Alexandra superkid Nick Powell in today's League Two playoff.

Cheltenham's on-loan Everton fullback Luke Garbutt says they're wary facing Crewe Alexandra superkid Nick Powell in today's League Two playoff.

Highly-rated forward Powell, who has been linked with a summer switch to Manchester United, has been influential in Crewe’s promotion charge with 14 goals this season.

Garbutt acknowledges he and his team-mates will have to be on their guard to stop Powell, but insists Cheltenham — having won their last four on the spin — will also cause their own problems.

“He’s a young player, he’s their bright spark and he’ll be someone we have to keep an eye on but I think we’ll deal with him and we’ll offer a threat as well,” Garbutt said. “I think we’ll take our game to them.”
