Futcher sidelined for Shakers
Bury boss Alan Knill will be without defender Ben Futcher for the home clash with Crewe.
Futcher is nursing a hamstring injury and will play no part against Dario Gradi`s men.
On-loan Manchester United striker Nicky Ajose will remain sidelined for several more weeks with a knee injury.
But the Shakers have no other worries as they seek to further enhance their promotion credentials. Striker Ryan Lowe will be aiming to continue his hot streak in front of goal.
Lowe scored his seventh goal in six matches during last weekend`s 1-1 draw at Gillingham and took his tally for the season to 21.
Knill said: "I've seen him for a number of years and it's the best he's ever been."
Shaun Miller could be fit and available for Crewe.
Alex have been without the 13-goal striker since he failed to reappear for the second half during the defeat at Northampton on February 1.
Miller has been nursing a thigh injury but could renew his prolific partnership with top scorer Clayton Donaldson at Gigg Lane.
It was hoped that Mat Mitchel-King would also be fit but the defender has suffered a recurrence of a back injury.
However, the problem is not as bad as initially feared and he has a chance of making a return against Burton next weekend.
Defender Adam Dugdale, midfielder Luke Murphy and striker Ajay Leitch-Smith are available for recalls should boss Dario Gradi wish to make changes.
Bennett to Shakers' rescue
Kyle Bennett came off the bench to spark a thrilling fightback as Bury came from behind to claim a 3-1 home win over Crewe.
Bury looked out of sorts in the first half and in the 41st minute Clayton Donaldson charged down the right before slipping the ball inside for Shaun Miller, who kept his cool to convert his 14th of the season.
But Bennett was then introduced on the hour mark and turned the game around with a five-minute brace.
The 20-year-old winger equalised with the first goal of his senior career in the 64th minute when he pounced on a loose ball before firing in a superb second from 20 yards.
Top scorer Ryan Lowe then struck in the 76th minute to condemn Crewe to a fifth defeat in six games, equalling a 53-year-old club record of scoring in seven consecutive league games.
Lowe cut inside from the left to fire home from the edge of the box for his 22nd goal of the season and his eighth in seven games.
