Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon could have defender Anthony Charles back for the visit of Crewe.

Charles has missed the last two games with a groin injury but is in contention to come back into the side as the Shots look to return to winning ways.

Midfielder Scott Donnelly picked up a dead leg in the midweek defeat to Torquay and is a doubt so Kirk Hudson is on standby for a rare start.

On-loan Bristol City striker Marlon Jackson injured his hamstring against Port Vale last weekend and is out along with right-back Ben Herd.

Herd suffered what initially appeared to be a serious ankle injury against Vale and will be out for at least a fortnight while Andy Sandell (hamstring) and John Halls (groin) should be back within a week or so.

James Bailey is struggling to be fit for Crewe.

The midfielder sustained a calf injury against Shrewsbury and that forced him to miss the midweek match at Bury.

Bailey has internal bleeding and a bruised bone and it is likely he will remain on the sidelines.

Carl Martin is making progress in his recovery from the ankle injury he suffered against Shrewsbury but he also remains a doubt as he has yet to train this week. Fellow defender Danny O`Donnell is still nursing a hamstring problem.

Mat Mitchel-King and Harry Worley are likely to remain Crewe`s central defensive pairing as boss Dario Gradi does not want to risk Patrick Ada.

"I don't want to put Pat in and find he's not up to it and we lose 6-0," said Gradi. "I nearly selected him against Bury because Harry has been close to making mistakes but in the end I went with what I know best. I've not seen enough of Pat so it would be a risk picking him."
