Top scorer Matt Tubbs comes back into the Crawley team for their League One clash with Colchester United at the Checkatrade.com Stadium today.

Tubbs was left on the bench for the 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury in midweek but is recalled as one of two changes for Reds.

Rory Fallon, who made his full debut against Shrewsbury, drops out of the squad completely to make way for the on-loan Bournemouth striker.

The other change sees Andy Drury replace Gary Dicker in midfield after recovering from the slight groin strain which kept him out of the match at Greenhous Meadow.

Colchester are also able to bring back their top scorer after Jabo Ibehre was passed fit following hip and pelvic injuries. He comes in for former Republic of Ireland international Clinton Morrison while Craig Eastmond takes over from Gavin Massey in midfield.

The Us include two former Crawley loanees in Sanchez Watt and Tom Eastman and have switched from their regular 4-2-3-1 formation to a 4-3-3.

Crawley (4-4-2): P Jones; M Connolly, McFadzean, Walsh, Sadler; Simpson, Bulman, Drury, M Jones; Clarke, Tubbs. Subs: Maddison, P Connolly, Torres, Boateng, Dicker, Kaikai, Proctor.

Colchester (4-3-3): Walker; Wilson, Okuonghae, Eastman, Dickson; Wright, Bean, Eastmond; Watt, Ibehre, Watt. Subs: Cousins, Gilbey, Massey, Vose, Sesay, Bonne, Morrison.
