Crawley Town manager John Gregory has named an unchanged starting 11 for this evening’s fourth attempt to decide their FA Cup second round clash against Bristol Rovers.

Due to appalling weather, this is the first game the Reds have played since beating Notts County 1-0 on December 29.

Billy Clarke serves the second match of a three-game suspension while Dannie Bulman is out of action for several weeks having broken his cheekbone.

Goal hero Matt Tubbs who returned to Crawley this week cannot play because of being cup-tied.

Bristol have made two changes to the team which lost 2-0 at Rochdale on December 29 with striker Elliott Richards and central midfielder Tom Lockyer replacing Oliver Norburn and the injured Alfie Santos.

REDS: P Jones, Sadler, Connolly, McFadzean, Torres, Drury, Walsh, Proctor, Adams, Sinclair, M.Jones.

SUBS: Hurst, Alexander, Simpson, Smith, Maddison

ROVERS: Mildenhall, M. Smith, Parkes, Clarkson, Harrold, Richards, Brown, Clark, McChrystal, Lockyer, O’Toole

SUBS: Woodwood, Norburn, Harrsion, Harding, Beardsley, Gough, Keary

REFEREE: Andy Davies
