Steve Davis may shuffle his pack as Crewe look to continue their fine run of form.

Victory would move the Railwaymen level on points with play-off incumbants Swindon and MK Dons, who are not in league action this weekend, and Davis only has a pair of injury concerns to occupy himself with following a month that has brought four wins from five matches.

Goalkeeper Steve Phillips is a minor doubt with a groin complaint but expects to play, while midfielder Ollie Turton (thigh) is set to remain sidelined.

Newcastle loanee Brad Inman is poised to continue in midfield alongside Abdul Osman and skipper Luke Murphy after extending his stay at Gresty Road until February 11, but forward Lauri Dalla Valle plays the final match of his spell from Fulham.

Sam Hoskins is set to be added to the Stevenage squad.

The 19-year-old striker joined Boro on loan from Southampton for the rest of the season on Thursday.

Hoskins is likely to start on the bench with Stevenage boss Gary Smith having an almost fully-fit squad available.

Defender Jon Ashton remains the only injury absentee with an Achilles problem and he is edging closer to a return to action.

Smith will be considering making changes, though, after his side fell to a third straight defeat at Walsall on New Year's Day.

Bondz N'Gala, Robin Shroot, Marcus Haber and Greg Tansey are among those pushing for recalls after starting on the bench on Tuesday.
