Tomlin returns for Crawley

First published in Sport by

Crawley have made one change as they bid to arrest a run of three successive defeats away to MK Dons.

Gavin Tomlin has replaced Lewis Young in the starting line-up from the team that gave a good account of themselves before losing 3-1 at Championship side Norwich City in the second round of the Capital One Cup in midweek.

Young reverts to the bench alongside striker Matt Harrold, who is fit again after summer knee surgery, and new goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown.

MK Dons have made three changes from the side that stunned Manchester United 4-0 in their midweek league cup game.

The influential Ben Reeves misses out through illness while two-goal Will Grigg and Samir Carruthers drop to the bench.

Benik Afobe, who also scored twice after coming on as a substitute against United, starts alongside Tom Hitchcock and Daniel Powell.

Crawley: Jensen; Oyebanjo, Leacock, Walsh, Dickson; Bawling, Smith, Henderson, Edwards; Tomlin, McLeod. Subs: Banya, Bradley, Harrold, Rose, Young, O’Connor, Ashdown.

MK Dons: Martin; Baldock, Kay, McFadzean, Lewington; Alli, Potter, Bowditch, Powell, Hitchcock, Afobe. Subs: Flanagan, Spence, Randall, Rasulo, Carruthers, Grigg, McLoughlin.
