Rooney on bench for Crawley
New signing Luke Rooney had to be content with a place on the bench for Crawley Town’s Capital One Cup first round tie away to Cheltenham Town.
The 22-year-old midfielder joined Reds earlier in the day on loan from Swindon Town until January.
Rooney has been allowed to train with Crawley for the last few days but was not deemed match fit enough to start against the League Two outfit.
Manager Richie Barker opted for an unchanged side from the team that opened the League One campaign with a 3-2 win at home to Coventry on Saturday.
New dad Billy Clarke was included among the substitutes.
Cheltenham made one change with Byron Harrison replacing the injured Jamie Cureton.
Crawley: P.Jones; Hurst, McFadzean, Walsh, Sadler; Adams, Bulman, Simpson, M.Jones; Alexander, Proctor. Subs: Connolly, Essam, Clarke, Torres, Drury, Rooney, Maddison.
Cheltenham: S.Brown; Jombati, T.Brown, Elliott; Braham-Barrett; McGlashan, Penn, Richards, Deering; Gornell, Harrison. Subs: Kotwica, Hanks, Lowe, Taylor, Roberts, Jones, Vincente.
Referee: Oliver Langford (West Midlands).
