TEAM NEWS

Dannie Bulman returns after suspension and Matt Tubbs (hamstring) and Andy Drury (sickness bug) should be available.

Brentford have no fresh injury concerns following their 3-1 win over Notts County on Saturday.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "It is going to be tough and would have been so even if we'd been in the best form of the season which we're not. But our performances against the best sides in this division have been consistently good. We won at Orient, we beat Wolves so Brentford won't hold any fears for us. It's a game the boys are really looking forward to."


David Weir (Brentford assistant manager): "Crawley will come here and make it difficult but we will prepare right and be ready for them."


WE'VE MET BEFORE

Four previous meetings have all been won by the Bees. Last season they won 2-1 in the two league encounters and 1-0 at Griffin Park in the JP Trophy. At the Checkatrade.com Stadium in November, an early penalty from Adam Forshaw earned the visitors a 1-0 success.
