Crawley will be hoping to kickstart their season tonight (7:45pm) against One of the favourites to win League Two title.

The Reds host Salford at The People’s Pension Stadium in their first home game of the campaign.

It is the first time they have played since last Tuesday, after their home game against Harrogate at the weekend was called off due to a number of positive Covid cases within Harrogate’s squad.

But it has not been the best start to the season for John Yems side.

They lost their opening game of the season against newly-promoted Hartlepool 1-0 on August 7.

Then last Tuesday they were knocked out the Carabao Cup after losing 10-9 on penalties to League One side Gillingham.

Skipper George Francomb will be available after he missed the first league game of the season through suspension.

While Summer arrivals Harry Ransom, Ludwig Francillette and Southampton loanee Will Ferry will also be hoping to feature from the off.

However, their opponents, Salford have not made the best of the starts to the campaign.

Gary Bowyer’s have drawn their opening two league games against Leyton Orient (1-1) and Sutton (0-0) leaving them 14th in the table.

There will be a familiar face making a return to The People’s Pension Stadium tonight for the visitors in midfielder Matty Willock.

The 24-year-old, spent the second half of the 2018/19 season with the Reds on loan from Manchester United and made 11 appearances during his spell in West Sussex.

Since then, he had spent the last two seasons at League One side Gillingham after joining them on a free transfer.

But earlier this month he joined Salford on a free transfer and has scored their only league goal this season on his debut in their 1-1 draw against Leyton Orient the weekend before last.

Conor McAleny, Brandon Thomas-Asante, Josh Morris and Ian Henderson are looking to make their third successive league appearances in search of a first win.

Ashley Eastham is in line to keep his spot in the centre of defence alongside Jordan Turnbull, while goalkeeper Tom King is set to get the nod over Zach Jeacock, who is on loan from Birmingham.
