Cureton missing for Robins

Cheltenham will be without new signing Jamie Cureton for their Capital One Cup tie with Crawley.

The 37-year-old dislocated a shoulder and was stretchered off having opening the scoring on his debut for the club in their 2-2 draw with Burtonon Saturday.

And while an X-ray revealed no fracture, Cureton, whose opener was his 248th career goal, looks set to be sidelined for at least a month with Byron Harrison likely to get the nod from the start.

The former Exeter man is manager Mark Yates' only injury absentee for the meeting with the Sky Bet League One side but he could shuffle his pack with Ashley Vincent, Jason Taylor and Keith Lowe all options for the Robins boss.

Crawley boss Richie Barker is set to have striker Billy Clarke at his disposal.

Clarke missed Satruday's opening League one clash with Coventry as his wife was in labour, but he will be available at Molineux.

Sergio Torres is pushing for inclusion in midfield along with striker Andy Drury but both may have to be content with a place on the bench again.

This is only the third time these two sides have met competitively and it is also Town's third straight away trip in the League Cup's opening round.
