Simpson returns, young duo on bench for Crawley Town

Skipper Josh Simpson returns for Crawley Town at Bradford City today.

Simpson has recovered from a hamstring injury which ruled him out of the 1-0 defeat at Notts County on Easter Monday but Andy Drury remains sidelined.

The Reds captain will play in the attacking midfield role he performed to such good effect in the sensational 2-1 win over Wolves last month as boss John Gregory opts to play Matt Tubbs on his own up front.

Dannie Bulman also returns to the starting line-up after being a substitute at Meadow Lane, with Sergio Torres and Jamie Proctor dropping to the bench.

Drury is not even considered fit enough to be among the substitutes with young professionals Bradley Isaacs and Ryan Richefond included on the bench for the first time.

Top scorer James Hanson remains sidelined with a groin injury for Bradford but midfielder Nathan Doyle is fit after limping off during their 1-0 defeat to Swindon on Monday.

Bradford (4-4-2): McLaughlin; Darby, Davies, McArdle, Drury; De Vita, Doyle, Jones, Yeates; Stead, McLean. Subs: Jameson, Meredith, Dolan, Thompson, McHugh, McBurnie, Bennett.

Crawley (4-4-1-1): P Jones; M Connolly, McFadzean, Walsh, Sadler; M Jones, Bulman, Dicker, M Jones; Simpson; Tubbs. Subs: Maddison, Essam, Torres, Fallon, Proctor, Richefond, Isaacs.
