Crewe boss David Artell is set to keep faith in goalkeeper Ben Garratt for Tuesday’s clash with Carlisle.

Garratt admitted making errors in the 3-3 derby draw at Macclesfield on Saturday but will be given the chance to make amends.

Nevertheless Artell could look to make changes with Tom Lowery and Owen Dale among those aiming to return from the bench.

James Jones (ankle) is the only Alex player currently sidelined for the game.

Mark Cullen and Gary Liddle are both pushing to start for Steven Pressley’s in-form Cumbrians.

The pair both made successful returns from injury as substitutes in the weekend draw with Exeter.

Winger Arthur Gnahoua (hamstring) and Macauley Gillesphey (knee) are long-term absentees.

Jason Kennedy is close to making a full recovery from a pelvis operation but is unlikely to be risked so soon.
