Crawley Town V Cheltenham at Stadium : Match Preview

12 April 2017

Crawley hampered by Collins suspension

Crawley will be without top-scorer James Collins as the Reds prepare to host Cheltenham on Good Friday.

The forward misses out through a one-match ban after he was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 2-1 defeat to Plymouth last weekend that leaves Crawley nine points clear of relegation.

Boss Dermot Drummy is still without defender Josh Yorwerth who serves the second game of his three-match ban.

Jordan Roberts (hamstring) could feature after almost two months out.

Full-back Jordan Cranston will serve a one-match suspension as Cheltenham try to stay out of relegation trouble at Crawley.

The Welshman was sent off before half-time for a second booking in last weekend's 3-3 draw at Wycombe.

Goalkeeper Rob Lainton joined the Robins from Bury on an emergency short-term loan for the trip to Adams Park, but regular Scott Brown - who had to sit the fixture out against his parent club - can return.

Third goalkeeping option Calum Kitscha and defender Daniel O'Shaughnessy were both out with injuries against the Blues.
