Crewe Alexandra have an away trip to fellow strugglers Walsall this weekend.
The Railwaymen need to make up ground at the bottom of the table despite the welcome boost of only their second league win of the season against Coventry City last time out.
Striker Marcus Haber is back in contention having missed out against the Sky Blues due to international duty with Canada.
Defender Harry Davis could also be on the bench following a long-term knee issue, while on loan striker Febian Brandy lines up against his former club.
Walsall midfielder Sam Mantom (knee) has returned to training but remains a doubt along with striker Tom Bradshaw (hamstring).
