Town to field new arrivals

New signings Andy Drury and James Hurst could both feature for Crawley against Coventry in Sky Bet League One.

Twenty-nine-year-old Drury joined from Ipswich while defender Hurst signed from Barclays Premier League side West Brom, with the duo remaining the club's only summer arrivals.

Manager Richie Barker will have to make do without Mustapha Dumbuya, Matt Sparrow and David Hunt who all left for pastures new at the end of last season.

The two clubs meet just four months on from their only other fixture at Broadfield Stadium which saw Crawley run out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Billy Clark and Connor Essam.

Coventry boss Steven Pressley will be forced to utilise the best of last season's squad.

The Sky Blues are currently under a transfer embargo after entering administration this summer, despite being purchased by the Otium Entertainment Group this week.

Pressley has moved to make pre-contract agreements with a number of players and is now waiting for the green light to push those deals through.

The Scot will be without the services of midfielder David Bell and striker Cody McDonald after the duo's contracts were cancelled during pre-season.
