Gradi set to ring the changes

Boss Dario Gradi could make changes against Southend as Crewe prepare for a fourth game in 11 days. Gradi, who has named the same starting XI for the last three matches, may have Matt Tootle available again. The full-back was on the bench against Chesterfield on Saturday following a two-game absence due to a virus. If fully-fit, he is a strong contender to come back into the side while Danny Shelley, who came off the bench to score a late free-kick and seal a 2-0 victory over the league leaders, may also have done enough to earn a start. Midfielder Joel Grant and forward Ajay Leitch-Smith are also options for Gradi although both are likely to be on the bench once again.
