Bury boss Kevin Blackwell could welcome fit-again striker David Healy back into his starting XI for Saturday's trip to Crewe.

The Northern Ireland international has not appeared for the Shakers since his country's 1-1 draw with Azerbaijan due to a calf injury but is set to provide an extra option in attack for Blackwell.

On-loan Leicester forward Tom Hopper is available for selection once again after he was ineligible for Tuesday's FA Cup defeat to Southend.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell (shin) is rated as doubtful, while Shane Byrne (illness) and Zac Thompson (hamstring) are likely to miss out.

Striker Andy Bishop will be out for around four weeks with a foot injury and defender Adam Lockwood (groin) remains sidelined.

Phil Picken (knee) is a long-term absentee.
