Chris Porter should be fit to start for fifth-placed Crewe as they host Mansfield in League Two on Saturday.
The marksman was taken off with a tight hamstring when Crewe beat Eastleigh in the FA Cup on Tuesday and replaced by Chuma Anene.
Anene used the opportunity to score twice during the 3-1 victory, but Crewe boss David Artell is still likely to favour the experienced Porter.
Artell has a handful of long-term injury absentees, including Lewis Reilly (knee), Olly Lancashire (Achilles) and Rio Adebisi (ankle).
Mansfield travel to Gresty Road looking for their first victory in five league games.
Stags boss John Dempster selected Bobby Olejnik when the team lost 3-0 to Cheltenham on Saturday, but could be tempted to revert back to usual keeper Conrad Logan in the wake of that result.
Kellan Gordan was replaced by Neal Bishop due to a back injury, but the latter suffered a concussion during the game meaning both could miss out.
Hayden White has returned to training following injury but may not be fit enough to feature, while Danny Rose is expected to take a spot on the bench again after recovering from a hamstring injury.
