Match Preview

Duo aiming for debuts Deadline-day signings Billy Clarke and Karl Hawley are pushing to make their Crawley debuts against promotion rivals Cheltenham. Clarke joined the Red Devils from Blackpool and fellow striker Hawley arrived on loan from Notts County until the end of the season. One of the new boys is likely to start alongside Tyrone Barnett in attack as Crawley attempt to fill the void left by top scorer Matt Tubbs' move to Bournemouth. There will be a further change on the bench after midfielder Ben Smith joined Aldershot on loan. But boss Steve Evans has no new injury worries after Saturday's trip to Bradford was postponed and will stick with the bulk of the side which beat Hull in the FA Cup. Cheltenham will continue to be without centre-back Steve Elliott. Elliott has missed the Robins' last two league matches with a calf strain and the veteran defender will not recover in time to face the Red Devils, with Keith Lowe set to deputise once more. Otherwise, manager Mark Yates has a fully-fit and injury-free squad at his disposal. Jeff Goulding returned to the starting line-up for the 3-1 victory at Macclesfield last time out and the striker will be hoping to keep hold of his place in the face of pressure from Jimmy Spencer and Daryl Duffy. Midfielder Russ Penn will be looking for a starting berth, with Brian Smikle possibly giving way.

Match Report

Crawley back on top Tyrone Barnett and Sanchez Watt scored twice as Crawley leapt to the top of League Two at the expense of their promotion rivals following a 4-2 win over Cheltenham. The game was given the go-ahead after a 6.45pm pitch inspection and Cheltenham stunned the hosts when defender Luke Garbutt blasted them ahead after only six minutes with a 25-yard drive into the bottom corner. Crawley hit back to equalise when Watt, on loan from Arsenal, rifled his first goal for the club after 12 minutes from 30 yards to the left of keeper Scott Brown. Barnett gave Crawley the lead in spectacular style three minutes later with a magnificent 30-yard strike, which curled into the top corner. He was on target again five minutes before the interval by firing an unstoppable shot home from a pass by skipper Pablo Mills. Watt struck the crossbar shortly after the break before extending his side's lead by sweeping in a loose ball after a shot on the turn by Barnett had hit skipper Alan Bennett. Cheltenham boss Mark Yates and Crawley counterpart Steve Evans were sent to the stands midway through the second half for repeatedly arguing in the same incident. Substitute Darryl Duffy came off the bench to pull a late goal back for Cheltenham, steering the ball past keeper Scott Shearer.
