Alex hopeful that left back could return from shin injury to face the Latics.
Crewe Alexandra’s on-loan left-back Greg Leigh is making good progress from his shin injury and could be back in contention for a place against Oldham Athletic this weekend. Leigh has missed the club’s last two matches after being on the receiving end of a knock in the 2-0 win over Scunthrorpe.
Leigh, 20, marked that game with the opening goal at Gresty Road, but he has been unable to train recently due to the injury.
Crewe will be without club captain Matt Tootle (ankle), Ryan Colclough (recovering from hip injury) and Ben Garratt (broken leg)
