Lincolnshire referee Darren Drysdale will be in charge of Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 game against Forest Green Rovers at The People's Pension Stadium.
It will be his second Reds' game of the season. He took charge of the 2-1 defeat to Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium in the Checkatrade Trophy in November.
Mr Drysdale has officiated at Championship level and had only taken charge of two Crawley fixtures before the Gillingham game.
The first was 1-1 draw at Hereford in November 2011, with the other being a 2-0 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers in December 2015. In 33 games this season he has shown 115 yellow and three red cards.
Ravel Cheosiaua and Garry Maskell will be his assistants. The fourth official is Paul Yates.
