Crewe Alexandra are on their travels again this weekend when visiting mid-table Walsall at the Banks's Stadium.

"We're just looking forward to improving on our performance against Portsmouth last week" - Steve Davis
Striker AJ Leitch-Smith is definitely out after suffering ankle ligament damage at Portsmouth last week. He is likely to remain sidelined for at least a month and will probably be replaced by Byron Moore.

Meanwhile, midfielder Abdul Osman is fit to return for the visitors and could come in for on loan Andy Bond after he suffered a slight groin strain in training.

Experienced goalkeeper Steve Phillips is also in their squad for the first time this season but appears unlikely to displace Alan Martin.

"Walsall had a great start to the season, although they've fallen away a bit of late," Crewe boss Steve Davis told BBC Radio Stoke. "But I watched them at Shrewsbury last weekend and thought they looked good. We're just looking forward to improving on our performance against Portsmouth last week."

Belgian midfielder Florent Cuvelier has recovered for the hosts after being forced off in the defeat at Shrewsbury, while Will Grigg returns from international duty.
