Goalkeeper Wayne Brown is the only absentee in Bury manager Alan Knill`s plans for Tuesday`s visit of Crewe.

The Shakers keeper received a straight red card in Saturday`s match with Cheltenham and is handed a one match suspension.

However, midfielder Mike Jones will return to the squad after completing his suspension.

Otherwise Knill has a full squad to pick from with no new injury concerns.

After their latest poor result in a string of bad performances, Bury will hope to topple Crewe if they are to regain a play-off position.

The Shakers are level on points with seventh placed Morecambe but currently sit below them on goal difference. Knill`s side have now won just one of their last 10 matches.

Defender Carl Martin and midfielder James Bailey will miss Crewe`s trip.

Martin failed to reappear for the second half against Shrewsbury on Saturday after sustaining an ankle injury just before the break. It was the centre-back`s full debut for the club after he came in for the injured Danny O`Donnell (hamstring).

Bailey had to be replaced by Simon Walton early in the second half of the same game after he complained of a calf problem.

It is hoped that both players will be back in contention for the game at Aldershot at the weekend.

With O`Donnell still struggling, Harry Worley looks set to replace Martin, although he will face competition from Patrick Ada. Either Walton or Luke Murphy are expected to fill-in for Bailey.
