Midfield pair missing as Crawley chase fourth win in a row

First published in Sport by

Crawley are without injured midfield duo Andy Drury and Josh Simpson as they chase a fourth successive league win at Notts County today.

Drury is missing with a hamstring injury while skipper Simpson while boss John Gregory has also opted to rest veteran Dannie Bulman.

That means Reds will line up with a much changed midfield to the one which helped Reds defeat Leyton Orient at home on Good Friday.

Sergio Torres and Gary Dicker come in in the middle of the pitch while Jamie Proctor starts alongside Matt Tubbs as Gregory switches back to a 4-4-2 after lining up in a 4-5-1 formation against the Os.

Kyle McFadzean is expected to take over the captain’s armband with regular skipper Simpson out and both Drury and Bulman – who have done the job in his absence before the season – not starting the match.

Reds are only able to name five substitutes in the absence of Simpson and Drury.

Notts Co (4-4-2): Bialkowsk; Thompson, Mullins, Hollis, Sheehan; Campbell-Ryce, McGregor, Liddle, Grealish; Spencer, Murray. Subs: Spiess, Dumbuya, Boucaud, Roberts, Dixon, Tyson, Waite.

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