TEAM NEWS

Ryan Dickson has recovered from a knee injury and is back in the squad but Mat Sadler won't be available as parent club Rotherham do not want him to be cup-tied.

Yeovil will be able to use the loan players they have recruited in recent weeks, having been given permission by their respective parent clubs, but striker Kieffer Moore and midfielder Simon Gillett are struggling to be available because of injury.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "It's not ideal playing a team from your own division and Yeovil have improved a lot since we played them in the League. It's going to be a tough game but this is the FA Cup and Crawley Town have a reputation in this competition now for doing well and I want to maintain that."

 

Gary Johnson, Yeovil manager (pictured): "Our team has changed quite a lot since we played them in the League and while we'd have preferred not to be playing another team from our division we have to get on with it and produce a winning performance, which we are certainly capable of doing."

 

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

Back in September, two second-half goals from Marvin Elliott earned Reds a 2-0 home win over the Glovers. In the 2012-13 League One campaign, Reds lost 1-0 at home to Yeovil and drew 2-2 at Huish Park on our only previous visit there as a League club.
