The Alex blew a half-time lead at Tranmere on Boxing Day to lose 2-1 and Davis has demanded improvement.
Mathias Pogba and Lauri Dalla Valle were both hauled off at Prenton Park and could be replaced from the start this time by Max Clayton and Byron Moore.
Kelvin Mellor is also in the reckoning after making the bench at Rovers, while Ajay Leitch-Smith may also be in contention.
"Kelvin isn't quite match fit but he's looking stronger each day," Davis told the Crewe Guardian.
"Ajay will take a little bit longer, mainly because he has been out for such a long time. We'll ease him in and if that means putting him on the bench and using him as an impact player, he can do that."
Ollie Turton (thigh) and goalkeeper Steve Phillips (shin/ankle) are still troubled by injury complaints.
