The Alex lost defender Harry Davis to a knee injury in the 3-0 loss to Gillingham last Saturday, although the problem is not as bad as first feared, which meant Dugdale was brought back to Gresty Road from Tranmere.
Midfielder Kelvin Mellor was left out of the squad altogether last weekend but manager Steve Davis has been impressed with his response to being dropped in training.
Striker Mathias Pogba (knee) is still a month away from a return and this clash is also likely to come too soon for goalkeeper Alan Martin (hip) and full-back Gregor Robertson (knee).
