Tubbs returns for Crawley

Top scorer Matt Tubbs returns from injury as Crawley bid to end a five match losing streak at Brentford tonight.

Tubbs has missed the last three games with a hamstring strain but comes in at the expense of Rory Fallon at Griffin Park.

The return of the seven-goal striker is one of three changes from the side which went down 2-1 at home to Crewe on Saturday.

Dannie Bulman comes straight back into midfield after serving a one-match ban at the expense of Sergio Torres while Paul Connolly replaces Mark Connolly at right-back.

Jamie Proctor has to settle for a place on the bench again despite scoring a sensational goal when he came on against Crewe while Andy Drury is not even among the substitutes as he continues his recover from illness.

Brentford make one change to the team which beat Notts County 3-1 on Saturday to keep their automatic promotion challenge on course. George Saville replaces Toumani Diagouraga in midfield while Stuart Dallas keeps his place up front with Italy under-21 striker Marcello Trotta remaining on the bench.

Brentford (4-3-3): Button; McCormack, Craig, Tarkowski, Bidwell; Douglas, Saville, Forshaw; Dallas, Donaldson, Judge. Subs: Bonham, O’Connor, Dean, Grigg, Diagouraga, Reeves, Trotta.

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