David Artell hopes to return for the final home game of the season.

The defender has missed the last three matches after suffering a hamstring injury during the defeat at Barnet at the start of the month.

He told the club's official website: "The injury is coming on. I've done a little bit of running trying to build it up so hopefully I can come through a couple of day's training and then we'll see what happens."

While Artell could feature, Luke Murphy's season is over after the midfielder underwent a hernia operation on Tuesday.

Murphy's absence could give Antoni Sarcevic another chance to impress manager Dario Gradi.

Nick Powell and Max Clayton are away on international duty with the England Under-17 squad.

Ray Mathias is boosted by the return of Matt Paterson and Paul Turnbull for the trip to derby rivals Crewe.

On-loan striker Paterson and midfielder Turnbull have missed the last two matches through injury but now come back into contention.

Mathias is urging his side to end a traumatic campaign on a high note in their final two games of the season.

County are all but relegated from the Football League after the 2-2 draw at home to fellow strugglers Northampton on Easter Monday.

The club's 106-year stay in the league is effectively over but Mathias is calling upon his players to bow out with victories away to Crewe and home to Cheltenham.

"We will keep going and hopefully finish on a high," said Mathias.
