Dumbuya and Proctor make Crawley debuts

First published in Crawley Town by

Crawley hand debuts to two new signings for their televised clash with Swindon Town at Broadfield Stadium this evening.

Mustapha Dumbuya comes in for David Hunt at right-back while Jamie Proctor starts up front following the departure of skipper Gary Alexander to AFC Wimbledon on deadline day.

Former Albion midfielder Matt Sparrow also makes his full debut. Sparrow, who was sub at Tranmere three weeks ago, partners new skipper Josh Simpson in the centre of midfield.

Two more new signings – Connor Essam and Johnny Maddison - are included among the substitutes.

Swindon make three changes to the side which drew 0-0 at Leyton Orient in midweek.

Gary Roberts comes in on the right of midfield in place of Matt Ritchie, who was sold to Bournemouth for £500,000 before the transfer deadline. Jay McEveley is at right-back for Nathan Thompson (virus) while Aden Flint replaces the hamstrung Joe Devera at centre-back.

Crawley (4-4-2): P Jones; Dumbuya, Connolly, Walsh, Sadler; Adams, Simpson, Sparrow, M Jones; Clarke, Proctor. Subs Maddison, Hunt, Essam, Bulman, Torres, Elford-Alliyu, Smith.

Swindon (4-4-2): Foderingham; McCormack, Flint, Ward, McEveley; Roberts, Miller, Ferry, De Vita; Williams, Collins. Subs: Bedwell, Navarro, Thompson N, Martin, Rooney A, Oakley.
