Nicky Hunt could feature when Crewe face Eastleigh in FA Cup replay

Crewe will return to action in their FA Cup second-round replay against non-league Eastleigh after their game at Macclesfield was called off.

The Railwaymen were set to play at Moss Rose on Saturday, before Macclesfield informed the EFL they would be unable to fulfil the fixture as a dispute over non-payment of wages continued.

Defender Nicky Hunt had been an unused substitute during the first cup game against Eastleigh after carrying a knock, so could come back into contention for Tuesday’s replay.

Defender Olly Lancashire (Achilles), striker Lewis Reilly (knee) and defender Rio Adebisi (ankle) continue their rehabilitation.

Eastleigh will be without defender Joe Partington through suspension as they look to pull off an upset and secure a third-round tie against Barnsley.

Partington was shown a red card during the Vanarama National League draw against Ebbsfleet, so must serve a one-match ban.

Reda Johnson is expected to travel with the squad and will provide cover at the back for the Spitfires.

Midfielder Jack McKnight, who has not featured since the end of October because of a hamstring issue, could be involved again but defender Alex Wynter (ankle) remains sidelined.
