Claude Davis and Kyle McFadzean go straight back into the starting line-up following suspension for Crawley's clash with Northampton at Broadfield Stadium.

The pair had been banned following their involvement in the Battle of Bradford City last month along with Pablo Mills, who is still suspended.

Davis comes into the centre of defence in place of the unfortunate John Dempster who drops to the bench with Charlie Wassmer retaining his spot.

McFadzean is expected to play in midfield alongside Dannie Bulman in place of Hope Akpan, who was sent off in the 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Striker Leon Clarke remains injured with Billy Clarke continuing alongside Gary Alexander up front.

Crawley (4-4-2): Kuipers; Simpson, Wassmer, Davis, Howell; Davies, Bulman, McFadzean, Neilson; B Clarke, Alexander. Subs: Shearer, Akinde, Dempster, Watt, James.

Northampton (4-5-1): Kitson; Johnson, Carlisle, Langmead, Adams; Robinson, Tozer, Wedderburn, Guttridge, Jacobs; Akinfenwa. Subs: Charles, Webster, Williams, Wilson, Silva.
