Match Preview: Crawley Town

27 October 2020

Tranmere Rovers make the trip to Crawley Town on Tuesday evening as they aim to make it two wins out of the last two.

Crawley currently sit 13th in the league table. Three places and two points above Rovers after eight matches played.

The sides last met in the 2018/19 on the final day of the season with Crawley winning the game 3-1 as Rovers had already turned their attention to the play-offs. Earlier that season, Rovers were 5-1 victors at Prenton Park.

Team news 

James Vaughan came through Saturday’s win unscathed after his first game following an isolation period. Calum Macdonald and Scott Davies also finished the game without any problems.

Corey Blackett-Taylor returned to the bench on Saturday after a spell out with a hamstring injury. Work on his return to full fitness will continue this week.

Manny Monthe may again be a doubt with a knee problem whilst Stefan Payne has been ruled out for three months after surgery on his groin.

Morgan Ferrier is still struggling with a hamstring issue.
