Crawley will check on Josh Simpson and Mike Jones ahead of the home game against Bristol City.

Red Devils skipper Simpson missed Tuesday night's goalless draw against Carlisle due to a hamstring problem and fellow midfielder Jones sat out with a groin injury.

Full-back Paul Connolly has completed the five-match ban imposed on him by the FA for his altercation with a Brentford fan last month, but he may still miss out due to a hernia.

Striker Billy Clarke is set to remain on the sidelines with a broken hand.

Bristol City will be without Bobby Reid when they take on Crawley.

The livewire midfielder, who made his return to action in the 0-0 draw with Crewe on Saturday having been sidelined since early March, has a slight hip problem and will miss out for Steve Cotterill's side.

The Robins will also be without goalkeeper Frank Fielding who remains sidelined with a bicep injury so Cardiff loanee Simon Moore will be in goal once more.

Sam Baldock will start upfront as he looks to clinch the League One golden boot. The former West Ham striker is one goal clear with one match to go.
