Paul McShane, Ryan McLaughlin, Ollie Rathbone, Jake Beesley and Gavin Bazunu have all been out in recent weeks but could return.
Crewe manager David Artell will have to make a late decision over the fitness of Olly Lancashire for the Spotland contest.

If he remains sidelined after his assessment on Monday, Travis Johnson could continue in the starting XI.
Midfielder Callum Ainley underwent hamstring surgery earlier this month and continues to be absent from the squad, while defender Perry Ng will serve the last game of his six-match suspension.
