Crewe may recall Billy Sass-Davies for the clash with Forest Green after he was benched because boss David Artell feared playing could do him “more harm than good”.
The 19-year-old defender impressed on his league debut in the victory over Yeovil before he was an unused substitute at Swindon on Monday as Artell looked after his long-term development.
Defender Aaron Taylor-Sinclair is a doubt once again due to a thigh injury.
Artell has been charged with two counts of improper conduct by the Football Association after the win at Swindon and has until Friday to respond.
Forest Green boss Mark Cooper is waiting to see if George Williams will be fit.
The forward missed Monday’s win over Cambridge with a twisted ankle and is a doubt for the visitors.
Cooper may be tempted to shuffle his pack after the Easter fixtures, with Forest Green having confirmed their play-off spot.
They remain in the automatic promotion race and are three points behind third-placed Mansfield.
