Crewe v Notts County preview

Team news for Tuesday's League One clash between Crewe Alexandra and Notts County at Alexandra Stadium.

Anthony Grant will serve a one-game suspension as Crewe welcome Notts County to Gresty Road.

The midfielder was dismissed in Saturday's 3-1 win over Gillingham after picking up a second yellow card in the game's dying stages.

His place in the starting XI will likely be given to club captain Abdul Osman while striker Vadaine Oliver, struggling with illness last week, comes into contention after training on Monday.

Defender Harry Davis has been ruled out for the season after dislocating his knee cap, although the club are hopeful he will be back in pre-season training after receiving positive news from a scan. Teenage duo Ryan Colclough (stomach) and Max Clayton (ankle) are still absent.

Notts County are likely to have an unchanged squad for the trip to Crewe.

Dean Leacock returned to the bench against Carlisle on Saturday after a thigh injury and it remains to be seen whether the defender will be recalled at Gresty Road.

Magpies manager Shaun Derry may be tempted to stick with the same players that started the 4-1 home victory against the Cumbrians.

However, Leacock, along with fellow centre-half Manny Smith, midfielder Callum McGregor and forwards Andre Boucaud and Nathan Tyson are option for Derry should he wish to tweak his team on Tuesday night.
