Crewe Alexandra will focus on the task of improving their recent disappointing home form when hosting Shrewsbury Town at Gresty Road this weekend.

"We need to continue battling and perhaps show some level of skill" - Steve Davis
The Alex have lost their last three games in front of their own supporters but bounced back with a hard-earned 2-1 victory at Colchester United last time out.

Latest signing Nathan Ellington was an unused substitute for that game and will hope for some involvement soon having only been recruited by the club until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, on loan midfielder Chuks Aneke (knee) and luckless winger Michael West (hip) are both back in contention this weekend, although Scotland Under-21 international Brad Inman has already been ruled out for at least another ten days due to a setback with his ankle injury.

"It's always a close game against Shrewsbury. History suggests there's never a lot between the two teams," Crewe boss Steve Davis told BBC Radio Stoke. "It's always important to win again after a good win away from home.

"We need to continue battling and perhaps show some level of skill," he continued. "We haven't done that enough at home. Although we've had some great results, we haven't entertained as much as we'd like at home."

The visitors are without Jermaine Grandison (hip) so defender Yado Mambo should feature, while striker Tom Eaves appears certain to start following his midweek brace in the 3-2 victory at MK Dons.
