IAN Evatt has made one change from the side that lost against Plymouth last weekend.

Kieran Sadlier replaces the injured Marlon Fossey, who is set to miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn meniscus.

Kyle Dempsey also returns to the squad following a spell out due to a groin issue. 

The Whites will be aiming to bounce back from last weekend’s 1-0 defeat against Plymouth at the UniBol.

Meanwhile, David Artell’s men were beaten 2-0 by Wigan in their last outing after goals from Josh Magennis and Will Keane.

Wanderers ran out 2-1 winners when the sides last met at the Mornflake Stadium back in 2017 thanks to goals from Adam Armstrong and Derik Osede.

Here’s how the sides line up.

Crewe: Richards, Harper, Offord, Long, Lowery, Ainley, Finney, Sambou, Lundstram, Johnson, Williams

Subs: Jaaskelainen, Porter, Murphy, Griffiths, O'Riordan, Lawton, Salisbury

Bolton: Trafford, Aimson, Santos, Johnston, Sadlier, Williams, Morley, John, Afolayan, Charles, Bodvarsson

Subs: Baptiste, Gordon, Thomason, Dempsey, Amaechi, Kachunga, Bakayoko
