Crawley will again be without Billy Clarke when they host Peterborough.

The striker serves the second game of a two-match ban after he was shown his second red card of the season at Walsall last weekend.

Midfielder Andy Drury will be checked over after he limped off following a hefty challenge, for which he was booked, during Tuesday night's 1-1 draw against Swindon.

Boss John Gregory has no other injury concerns while skipper Josh Simpson and winger Sergio Torres will be hoping to face their former club.

Jack Payne will be back in the Peterborough squad for the trip to Crawley.

Payne missed the 1-0 win at Stevenage with a groin strain but the 22-year-old will return on Saturday to swell manager Darren Ferguson's midfield options. However, the 22 year-old will not be a certain starter in West Sussex as Michael Bostwick and Grant McCann both played well in the middle of the park against Boro last weekend.

Nathaniel Knight-Percival limped off at the Lamex Stadium with a knock but the defender is now fit.

Kyle Vassell will be the only injury absentee for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy finalists. The striker is out for several weeks after suffering a broken toe in training.
