TEAM NEWS

Lanre Oyebanjo and Gavin Tomlin are both out until October for Reds. Gwion Edwards starts a three-match ban following his red card against Mansfield and Joe McNerney (knee) is doubtful while Matt Harrold (hamstring) is unlikely to feature.

New signings Rhys Murphy and Ross Jenkins comes into the squad.

Yeovil have a lengthy injury list with ten players likely to miss the game, including ex-Red Ryan Dickson. 


THE FORM GUIDE                

Reds have a win and three draws in six games so far while Yeovil have lost all three of their League games on the road so far.


VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "Yeovil have got a few injuries but Paul Sturrock will have them fired up and it will not be easy. We need to produce a response to a very poor performance last Saturday, there can be no excuses really - we have to get back on track."Mark Yates

Paul Sturrock (Yeovil manager): "It's how the season is unfolding but we've got to take the positives from last Saturday (1-1 v AFC Wimbledon) rather than the negatives and we’ve got to build a team again for Crawley – we work with what we’ve got. I might even register myself!”


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the sixth meeting between the sides in our Football League era. Last season two Marvin Elliott headers saw us win 2-0 at home but Yeovil won 2-1 at Huish Park and also beat Reds 1-0 in the first round of the FA Cup. In the 2012-13 campaign, Yeovil won 1-0 at Crawley with the reverse fixture finishing 2-2.
