Bulman starts for Crawley as Jones steps down

Dannie Bulman is handed a chance to impress in front of the Sky cameras against Doncaster Rovers tonight after being recalled to Crawley's midfield.

Bulman has been an unused substitute in the last two games and has only started one in the last five but is preferred ahead of Mike Jones.

Jones drops to the bench as the one change to the side which lost 2-1 at Scunthorpe United last weekend. It is only the fourth time since Jones joined from Sheffield Wednesday at the end of August.

New signing Aiden O'Brien has to settle for a place on the bench after joining on loan from Millwall last week, with boss Richie Barker sticking with the pairing of Billy Clarke and Jamie Proctor up front. Jonte Smith drops out of the matchday squad to make room for O'Brien.

Doncaster make one change from the side which drew 0-0 with MK Dons in their last outing, Lee Fowler replacing the injured Andy Griffin in midfield.

Crawley (4-4-2): P Jones; Dumbuya, Connolly, Walsh, Sadler; Adams, Simpson, Sparrow, Bulman; Clarke, Proctor. Subs: Maddison, Essam, Hunt, Torres, M Jones, Elford-Alliyu, O'Brien.

Doncaster (4-4-1-1): G Woods; Quinn, McCombe, Jones, Spurr; Cotterill, Harper, Fowler, Husband; Coppinger; Paynter. Subs: M Woods, Maxted, Wakefield, Sinclair, Bennett, Ball, Middleton.
