Crawley Town V Bristol Rovers - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Duo still missing for Red Devils

Dannie Bulman and Billy Clarke remain Crawley's only absentees for their FA Cup second-round replay with Bristol Rovers.


Veteran midfielder Bulman could be out for up to six weeks after he suffered a fractured cheekbone against MK Dons on Boxing Day and striker Clarke is still banned for the next two games after Wednesday's trip to Swindon was postponed.


But boss John Gregory has no new injury worries and has skipper Josh Simpson fit again after a month out with hamstring trouble.


Simpson, James Hurst and Gary Alexander are pushing for starts should Gregory opt to make changes from the 1-0 win over Notts County on Sunday.


Bristol Rovers have no fresh injury worries.


Manager John Ward could recall Elliot Richards to the starting line-up as he has made good progress since taking a whack to his knee against Torquay on Boxing Day.


Seanan Clucas and Danny Woodards will return from injury during January but this cup tie against League One opposition comes too soon for the pair.


The original tie was abandoned in the second half because of a waterlogged pitch so the teams do battle for the third time with a trip to Birmingham on Tuesday awaiting the winner.
