Crawley Town manager Richie Barker brought back Joe Walsh and Kyle McFadzean for this afternoon’s home match against fourth placed Bradford City at the Checkatrade.com Stadium. James Hurst serves a suspension for being sent-off against Newport County in last Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Emile Sinclair keeps his place upfront with Jamie Proctor. Dannie Bulman and Andy Drury both start.

Bradford include central defender Rory McArdle back from playing for Northern Ireland but are without topscorer Nahki Wells through injury. They make two changes from the side which lost 1-0 at home to Tranmere last Sunday. Jason Kennedy and Luke Oliver drop to the bench. Kyel Reid and James Hanson come in to the starting line-up.
