Crewe boss Steve Davis will enjoy the luxury of a fully fit squad for the crucial cup tie.

Alex hold a 3-0 lead in the tie ahead of the Sky Blues' trip to Gresty Road and Davis has options at his disposal.

Harry Davis could return to the defence having been an unused substitute against Bournemouth last week following a toe injury, while fellow defender Matt Tootle is also in contention.

Byron Moore, Max Clayton and Ryan Colclough all came off the bench to help draw the Railwaymen level in the 2-1 defeat to the Cherries and the trio are pushing for places in attack, where Mathias Pogba is expected to start having missed the first-leg due to international duty with Guinea.

"We will have a look at things today and decide what we are going to do," Davies told Crewe's official website. "It is always nice to have everyone available and to have that choice.

"I can change the personnel around to suit our game plan and hopefully we can surprise Coventry with one or two things again."

Lee Carsley may well opt to keep faith with an unchanged side as Coventry aim to complete a remarkable turnaround at Crewe.

Caretaker boss Carsley on Saturday took charge of City's first game post the Mark Robins era and duly recorded a solid 2-0 victory at Bury.

With no new injury or suspension problems, Carsley is unlikely to see any reason to change a winning formula as the Sky Blues strive to overturn the 3-0 deficit from the first leg in front of what was a stunned packed house at the Ricoh Arena.

Full-back Carl Dickinson made his debut at Gigg Lane, with Blair Adams ruled out for another four weeks with his medial knee strain, and the Watford loanee is set to continue at the back.
