Davies back for Shots
Scott Davies is set to make his third debut for Aldershot at home to Crewe as the club refocus their efforts on league matters following their Carling Cup adventure.
The midfielder, 23, on Thursday returned to the Recreation Ground on loan from Crawley until January 7 having previously spent season-long stints with the Shots in 2007/08 and 2008/09.
He arrives just days after Dean Holdsworth's proud side bowed out of the League Cup courtesy of a respectable 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United.
Aldershot lost four successive matches immediately after being paired with United in the fourth round but returned to winning ways in last weekend`s 5-2 triumph at Dagenham & Redbridge, and Holdsworth will be hoping for more of the same.
Midfielder Alex Rodman will be assessed having been forced off at half-time against United with a shoulder injury, while on-loan left-back Jordan Brown has returned to West Ham following the completion of his stay, although he failed to make the matchday 18 in midweek.
Crewe manager Dario Gradi has a welcome selection headache.
The veteran boss is boosted by having a fully-fit squad at his disposal given a trio of players are set to make their returns.
Utility-man Ashley Westwood, forward Ajay Leitch-Smith and striker Max Clayton have been suffering from heel, calf and hamstring injuries respectively.
However, they are making good progress and should feature against a Shots side that earned plenty of plaudits following a brave display in their 3-0 midweek Carling Cup loss to Manchester United.
Defender David Artell came on in Tuesday's 1-0 win over Cheltenham following a hamstring problem and will feature once again.
Danny Shelley made his return from an ankle injury against the Robins and will be involved, most likely from the bench.
Hylton at the double for Shots
Danny Hylton's double helped Aldershot end a memorable week with a 3-1 victory over Crewe.
Hylton scored a goal in either half to round off a seven-day period which saw the Shots thrash Dagenham and Redbridge 5-2 last Saturday and take on the might of Manchester United in the Carling Cup midweek.
The scores were level at the interval as Hylton's strike was cancelled out by Ajay Leitch-Smith's effort, but Jermaine McGlashan and Hylton's second after the break settled matters.
Hylton gave the Shots the lead midway through the first half, converting Michael Rankine's knock-down from close range.
But against the run of play Crewe grabbed an equaliser in the 30th minute when 21-year-old frontman Leitch-Smith rounded two defenders before coolly slotting the ball home.
Aldershot got their noses in front almost immediately after the break when McGlashan, man of the match in Tuesday`s valiant 3-0 defeat to Sir Alex Ferguson`s side, took his tally to three in two games with a deflected volley.
And Hylton's 12th of the season put the game beyond doubt just after the hour mark when he fired home Peter Vincenti's pull back.
