Vital Quotes:

Oh how the media will spin this as though Crawley Town are a side of plumbers and postman.

However, the truth is that this Non-League club have a bit of financial clout and a pretty established side as a result of it.

I'm sorry Crawley Town fans, this IS a supporter of a League One football club that is fearing the worse.

Crawley Town Team News:

Former Boston United and York City midfielder Simon Rusk is the only player who is unavailable due to a long standing knee problem.

On-loan Reading winger Abdulai Bell-Baggie could be given a full debut.

Crawley have a squad that boasts plenty of experience with players such as Michel Kuipers and Sergio Torres.

Player to watch: Matt Tubbs

Kevin Amankwaah and Vincent Pericard are both in training but could be lacking match fitness.

Also, Manchester City have refused permission for David Ball to play.

Mark Scott is cup-tied.

Player to watch: David Prutton

With Douglas injured, it's important for the former England prospect to take control of the midfield.
