Bawling makes league debut as Crawley chase fourth win in a row

First published in Sport by

Bobson Bawling makes his full league debut as Crawley chase a fourth consecutive win of the season against Bradford City tonight.

Bawling comes in for Conor Henderson who he replaced in the centre of midfield in the second half of the 1-0 victory over Swindon Town on Saturday.

The 18-year-old former Watford midfielder has come off the bench in both Crawley’s League One games so far and started the Capital One Cup victory over Ipswich Town.

The inclusion of Bawling is the only change for Reds who are still without skipper Josh Simpson and striker Matt Harrold through injury.

Crawley also have no goalkeeper on the bench after Raphael Speigel returned to West Ham at the end of his loan spell.

Bradford make three changes to the team which played out a goalless draw at Walsall at the weekend.

Filipe Morais comes in for his league debut while Aaron McLean starts for the first time this season having picked up an injury in pre-season. Alan Sheehan also returns after missing the trips to the Bescot Stadium due to the death of his mother.

Crawley (4-4-2): Jensen; Oyebanjo, Leacock, Walsh, Bradley; Edwards, Smith, Bawling, Dickson, Tomlin, McLeod. Subs: Young, Banya, Henderson, Essam, Rose, O’Connor, Richefond.

Bradford ( 4-1-2-1-2): Pickford, Darby, McArdle, Davies, Sheehan, Liddle, Kennedy, Knott, Morais, Mclean, Hanson. Subs: Williams, Meredith, Dolan, Yeates, Routis, McBurnie, Bennett
