Torres misses farewell game for Crawley

Sergio Torres has played his last ever game for Crawley Town.

Torres is absent from the Reds team for their final game of the season against Bristol City at the Stadium after breaking his wrist in the 0-0 draw with Carlisle in midweek.

The popular Argentinean midfielder – who is one of 12 players out of contract in the summer - has also indicated he will not be returning to the club next season via Twitter.

Skipper Josh Simpson comes in to replace Torres after recovering from a slight hamstring injury.

There was one other change to the goalless draw with Carlisle with Joe Walsh ruled out due to an ankle injury.

Mike Jones replaced Walsh in the starting line-up having recovered from a groin problem, meaning Simpson is likely to start at right-back with Mark Connolly partnering Kyle McFadzean in the centre.  

Another player who looks to be heading for the exit door at Crawley is Paul Connolly with the right-back not even included on the bench despite returning from a five-game ban - although the club claim he is suffering from a groin injury.

There are places for young duo Bradley Isaacs and Ryan Richefond among the substitutes as they push for a first team debut.

Bristol City make two changes from their goalless draw with Crewe last weekend, including a recall for former Crawley striker Tyrone Barnett in place of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

Brendan Moloney also comes in at right wing-back in place of Scott Wagstaff.

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

Bristol City (3-5-2): Moore; Nosworthy, Osborne, Williams; Moloney, Elliott, Gillett, Pack, Cunningham; Barnett, Baldock. Subs: Richards, Carey, Wagstaff, Kelly, Pearson, Emmanuel-Thomas, Burns.
