Crewe Alexandra: Steve Davis set to shuffle pack at Coventry City
MAX Clayton and Ryan Colclough are battling it out for a call-up to Crewe's front line at Coventry City this afternoon (3pm).
Steve Davis is preparing to freshen up his side as he prepares to face the Sky Blues for the third time in 18 days with Ajay Leitch-Smith among those expected to be given a breather.
Striker Leitch-Smith has played in Crewe's last seven matches having been ruled out for two-and-a-half months with a foot injury.
Byron Moore and Harry Davis are also gunning for recalls as Crewe hope for a repeat of their Johnstone's Paint Trophy heroics at the Ricoh Arena – but Matt Tootle is not expected to be risked with a toe injury.

Steve Davis said: "We've got nine games in the next three weeks, including under-21 games, and that's a hell of a lot. It's going to need a big effort from the squad.
"I've been looking to see who looks tired and who's fresh.
"I'm pleased with the way the squad is performing and working hard, but the next couple of weeks will be a case of how they recover from games as well.
"I'll do what's right for the team and players. There are still a lot of games to go and we'll need everyone firing."
