Crewe are hopeful both Vadaine Oliver and Billy Waters can return to action against Rotherham.

Striker Oliver, a summer recruit from Lincoln, has seen his pre-season disrupted by a groin injury which has kept him out of the last four friendlies.

However, like Waters - who has been hampered by a knee problem - Oliver returned to training on Thursday with Alex hopeful both can declare their fitness against the Millers.

Forward Mathias Pogba, who was the club's top scorer last season, is struggling with a knee injury he picked up against Manchester United on Monday.
