New signing Conor Clifford is among the substitutes for Crawley's League One encounter at Crewe Alexander this afternoon.

The Chelsea midfielder, signed on loan on Thursday, has to wait for his chance as boss Richie Barker names an unchanged side from the 1-0 defeat to Yeovil in midweek.

Kyle McFadzean continues in defence despite having to come off before half-time against the Glovers due to a bug.

Joe Walsh returns to the squad after serving a one-match ban against Yeovil but Claude Davis is not available following his suspension as his wife has just given birth.

Crewe stick with the side which drew 3-3 against Sheffield United in midweek with Bradden Inman the only change on the bench.

Crawley (4-4-2): P Jones; Byrne, Connolly, McFadzean, Sadler; Adams, Simpson, Akpan, M Jones; Clarke, Alexander. Subs: Kuipers, Hunt, Walsh, Torres, Bulman, Clifford, Ajose.

Crewe (4-4-1-1): Martin; Tootle, Davis, Ellis, Robertson; Moore, Murphy, Osman, Pogba; Aneke, Valle. Subs: Phillips, Dugdale, Clayton, Turton, Guthrie, Colclough, Inman.
