Mat Mitchel-King is a doubt for Crewe ahead of the home game against Cheltenham.

The centre-half is nursing a back problem following the incredible 4-3 defeat to 10-man Morecambe on Friday.

Crewe chief Dario Gradi will choose from Patrick Ada, Carl Martin or on-loan defender Harry Worley if Mitchel-King fails to make it.

Leading scorer Calvin Zola returned on the bench at Christie Park following hamstring and ankle ligament injuries and the 16-goal striker should be in the squad again.

The same can be said of midfielder Simon Walton after he made a late substitute appearance following a rib problem.

The versatile Ashley Westwood completes a three-match suspension, while on-loan full-back Chris Stokes is still struggling with a hamstring injury.

Cheltenham midfielder Michael Pook could be doubtful after sustaining two black eyes in the win over Lincoln.

Pook received a knock in his face and is also nursing a badly bruised nose, but manager Martin Yates expects him to be available for the game at Gresty Road.

Striker Julian Alsop will lead the line after becoming the club's all-time leading goalscorer in the Football League with the winner on Saturday.

Midfielder Medy Elito was replaced by Andy Gallinagh in the closing stages against Lincoln, but was merely being rested with the Crewe clash in mind.

Yates has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side chase a fourth win in their last six league matches to edge closer to safety.
