Team News - Crewe
Loan keeper John Ruddy will make his alex debut after sealing a one month loan move from Everton on thursday. Luke Murphy is back fit for the alex and fellow midfielder Micheal O'Connor, who was dropped at Peterborough for showing poor dicepline to officals at Northampton. Captain Julian baudet is back after a one game ban but he looks likely to lose out to Dennis Lawrence and loanee Marlon Broomes in the heart of the defence.
