Crawley v Barnet preview

Date published: Thursday 29th December 2011 3:14

Leaders Crawley will be without defensive duo Claude Davis and David Hunt through suspension.

Centre-half Davis serves a one-match ban after he was sent off in the 2-1 defeat by Gillingham on Boxing Day and right-back Hunt also sits out against the Bees for collecting his fifth booking of the season.

Kyle McFadzean, who started in midfield against the Gills, is likely to step back into defence while boss Steve Evans has recalled Glenn Wilson from his loan spell at Fleetwood Town to provide further cover.

Midfielder Ben Smith is also back at the Broadfield Stadium following the end of his loan spell with Woking and he will be added to the squad.

Meanwhile, Clovis Kamdjo returns to the Barnet squad for the match.

The midfielder was suspended for the 3-0 Boxing Day defeat by Dagenham after collecting a fifth booking of the season and was replaced by Alassane N’Diaye.

On-loan defenders Michael Hector and Paul Downing have extended their stints with the club while full-back Gary Borrowdale will play the final match of his current spell on loan from QPR.

Striker Steve Kabba is still missing with a long-term knee injury.

Fellow frontmen Charlie Taylor and Ricky Holmes are pushing for starts if manager Lawrie Sanchez opts to make changes after his side slipped to within three points of the drop zone following a third game without a win.
