Crawley v Bristol R preview

Team news for Tuesday's FA Cup second-round replay between Crawley Town and Bristol Rovers at Broadfield Stadium.

New signing Matt Tubbs will not be available when Crawley take on Bristol Rovers in their rearranged FA Cup second-round replay.

Striker Tubbs on Monday re-signed for Town on loan from Bournemouth, but he is cup-tied having already played in the competition this season while on loan at Rotherham.

Midfielder Dannie Bulman is missing with a fractured cheekbone and forward Billy Clarke is halfway through a three-match ban.

But boss John Gregory has no new injury worries and has skipper Josh Simpson fit again after a month out with hamstring trouble.

Bristol Rovers manager John Ward will be able to call on Chris Beardsley for the FA Cup clash with Crawley.

The striker, who has scored twice in seven appearances for Rovers, this week had his loan from Preston extended until the end of the season.

The deal hands the Pirates a boost after Ryan Brunt was ruled out for another two months with a troublesome knee problem.

Ward has vowed not to rest any of his players as he looks to book a third-round trip to Birmingham.
