TEAM NEWS

Joe McNerney (knee) and Jimmy Smith (foot) are both missing for Reds while ex-Argyle captain Simon Walton starts a three-match suspension.

Plymouth have no new injury worries and ex-Reds' skipper Josh Simpson is hoping to be involved having been out for a month with injury.


THE FORM GUIDE                

Reds have won five of their last 14, losing the other nine. Crawley have only drawn one game since August 29.

Plymouth have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six, beating Mansfield 3-0 last time out on February 13. Their away record is excellent with just two defeats in the league on the road, the last at Oxford in October.


VIEW FROM THE BOSS

"It's a match I'm really looking forward to. This is what you enjoy - pitting your wits against one of the best teams in the division in front of your own supporters. We know how difficult it's going to be and my players will have to rise to the challenge. We've had a couple of blips recently but our home form has been pretty solid and the players can't wait for this game."
