Crawley v Notts County preview

Team news for Sunday's League One clash between Crawley Town and Notts County at Broadfield Stadium.

Crawley will be without Dannie Bulman and Billy Clarke when they host Notts County.

Midfielder Bulman suffered a suspected fractured cheekbone against MK Dons on Boxing Day and striker Clarke starts a three-match ban after he was sent off towards the end of the 2-0 defeat.

But boss John Gregory hopes Nicky Adams will be fit despite going off with a back spasm, while skipper Josh Simpson could return following a hamstring injury.

Defender Kyle McFadzean will also be available having completed his one-match suspension.

Notts County hope to have Callum Ball available for the trip to Crawley.

Ball missed the Boxing Day defeat at Port Vale after suffering a head injury during the home draw with Bristol City last weekend. Magpies manager Shaun Derry has his fingers crossed that he will be fit enough to feature, although no risks will be taken with the on-loan Derby striker.

Joss Labadie is fighting to overcome an ankle injury but the club have revealed that fellow midfielder Gary Liddle will miss the "vast majority' of the remainder of this season after scans showed he suffered ankle ligament damage against Bristol City.

Defender Mustapha Dumbuya made his first start for two months following a thigh injury at Vale Park in place of Kieron Freeman, who was recalled from his loan spell by parent club Derby on Christmas Eve.
