Crewe have struggled so far this term, winning only won once in the league, which leaves them languishing in 23rd place.
The Railwaymen are winless in their last five league encounters and a run of three consecutive League One draws was ended at the weekend, when they lost to Fleetwood Town.
On that occasion, Fleetwood thrashed Crewe 3-0, with all three goals coming in the second half to condemn David Artell‘s side to their sixth league defeat of the season.
Crewe have only kept one league clean sheet this term, and Artell will be concerned that his side have conceded 10 goals in their last five league fixtures.
They have also struggled to find the net with regularity, scoring only nine goals this term – only Doncaster Rovers have scored fewer goals in League One this season.
Artell could make changes to his team for Tuesday, and the Crewe boss may bring Chris Long into the starting lineup.There is also the possibility that Chris Porter makes way for Mikael Mandron.
Sunderland are likely to be without Lynden Gooch, who is out with a foot problem, while Aiden McGeady is a doubt with an ankle injury.

Crewe Alexandra possible starting lineup:
Jaaskelainen; Adebisi, Offord, Terell, McFadzean; Robertson, Murphy, Finney; Long, Bennett, Mandron
