Shrimps at full strength
Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has an almost fully-fit squad to choose from when his side host Crewe at the Globe Arena.
Paul Scott remains the only long-term absentee for the Shrimps with a knee injury sustained in pre-season .
Laurence Wilson made an earlier than expected comeback from his groin problem in last week`s FA Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and came through unscathed.
Will Haining also successfully returned from injury against the Owls, playing the final half hour.
Jason Price returned to the first-team squad as an unused substitute for the FA Cup match and both he and Haining are pushing for starting places against the Railwaymen.
The Shrimpers are unbeaten in five League Two matches and sit fifth.
David Artell faces a late fitness test but should be fit for Crewe as new manager Steve Davis prepares to take charge of his first league game.
The experienced centre-half suffered an Achilles tendon scare in the FA Cup defeat to Colchester but boss Davis is confident the 30-year-old will be fit to face his former club at the Globe Arena.
Harry Davis is on standby should Artell not make it.
Striker Nick Powell should also be fit for the Alex after struggling with a tight quad but Ashley Westwood is out as he starts a three-game ban following his red card against the Us last week.
Defender Westwood has vowed to repay Davis after Crewe conceded four goals following his dismissal.
Clayton late show sinks Shrimps
Crewe substitute Max Clayton scored his first league goal to earn a dramatic 2-1 victory over Morecambe for new boss Steve Davis.
Clayton, who made his England Under-18 debut in midweek, marked Davis' first npower League Two fixture in charge since taking over from Dario Gradi with a 94th minute winner.
Morecambe looked set to be heading for a second successive home win when top scorer Kevin Ellison gave them the lead against the run of play in the 69th minute.
A long Morecambe clearance saw Ellison outmuscle Crewe full back David Tootle to create the opening. His first shot was well saved by Steve Phillips but he was the quickest to the rebound and forced the ball over the line.
But 10 minutes later Crewe were level when their star man, 17-year-old Nick Powell, scored with a 25-yard effort that beat Barry Roche low to his his left.
And Clayton had the final word, pouncing from close range deep into stoppage time.
