Akpan returns from ban as Reds make one change
Crawley make one change as they bid to make it back-to-back away wins at Colchester United tonight.
Midfielder Hope Akpan returns from a one-match ban and replaces Dannie Bulman who performed well in the 2-1 victory at Preston on Saturday.
Josh Simpson is also available after suspension but has to be content with a place on the bench while defender Claude Davis is not in the squad as he continues to recover from a thigh injury.
Colchester make two changes to the side which lost 2-1 at home to Doncaster at the weekend with former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison coming in for Freddie Sears and Anthony Wordsworth replacing Andy Bond in midfield.
The Us feature two former Crawley players in their line-up in defenders Tom Eastman and Magnus Okuonghae.
Colchester (4-3-3): Cousins; Wilson, Okuonghae, Eastman, Rose; Izzet, Bean, Wordsworth; Henderson, Morrison, Massey. Subs: Pentney, Heath, Duguid, O'Toole, Sears, Bond, White.
Crawley (4-4-2): P Jones; Hunt, McFadzean, Connolly, Sadler; Adams, Akpan, Cooper, M Jones; Ajose, Alexander. Subs: Kuipers, Walsh, Wassmer, Simpson, Bulman, Clarke, Forte.
