Match Preview

Eagles pair in Crawley squad

Crawley could hand debuts to two Crystal Palace youngsters when they take on Carlisle.

Hiram Boateng and Sullay Kaikai joined the Reds on initial 28-day loan deals last week and are expected to go straight into the squad for Saturday's clash.

Crawley have not played since January 25, which has allowed Dannie Bulman to recover from a fractured cheekbone without missing more games.

Fellow midfielder Andy Drury has overcome a groin niggle, while Gary Dicker could finally make his full Reds debut.

Carlisle's latest signing Nacho Novo is hoping to be in contention.

The former Rangers striker signed a short-term deal until the end of the season this week and is expected to be included in Graham Kavanagh's squad, subject to international clearance.

Paul Thirlwell (calf) came through unscathed when making his first appearance since New Year's Day in the midweek win against Bradford. The midfielder started as a third central defender in a 3-4-3 formation.

On-loan Wigan midfielder Danny Redmond is expected to resume after making his debut on Tuesday night, but Conor Townsend (foot) and fellow defender Chris Chantler (ankle) remain sidelined.
