Crawley – Newport preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Crawley vs Newport lineups.

Crawley

Crawley earned a dramatic 4-3 home win vs Charlton in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night. Despite the win, this was the third game in a row in which 3 or more goals were conceded and right now the defensive actions are an area of major concern. 

The Red Devils have earned just 1 point from their last 3 league games. Last weekend they drew 3-3 away vs Stockport. 

The options for rotation remain limited with all of Omole, Kastrati and Brown still recovering from injuries. From them, Brown is the only one who would have been starting often though. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Addai (GK), Tsaroulla, Maguire, Ransom, Williams, Kelly, Darcy, Henry, Gordon, Orsi & Campbell 

Newport

Last weekend Newport were held to a frustrating 2-2 home draw by Wimbledon. Dominated and should have won but two individual defensive errors cost them dear. 

Newport’s form has been solid though. They won 3 of their last 5 league games while losing just once. Continue to score goals with great ease too. 

Striker Zanzala is a fitness doubt after injury but he has resumed training. Also, young defenders Baker and Drysdale are doubtful. Both have been nursing knee issues and are yet to play this season. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Townsend (GK), Lewis, Delaney, Bennett, Bondswell, Charlsey, Palmer-Houlden, Morris, Waite, Bogle & Evans 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Will Evans

Newport’s striker Will Evans has started the new campaign like a house on fire. He tops the League Two goalscoring chart with his 7 goals in 6 rounds. Evans has now scored in 6 consecutive games in all competitions and we struggle to see how the shaky Crawley defence could contain him. That’s why we back Evans to shine again.
