Josh Payne suspended for Crawley’s trip to Yeovil

Yeovil Town

Yeovil boss Darren Way will have no new injury concerns as he looks to lift his side against Crawley following their demoralising late defeat to Morecambe.

The Glovers led 3-2 with five minutes to play at the Globe Arena but two late goals saw them downed on Friday, although they have had one more day to recover than their opponents who played on Saturday.

Captain James Bailey (knee), Rhys Browne (ankle), Oscar Gobern (hamstring) and Dan Alfei (knee) all remain absent.

Omar Sowunmi scored his first goal of the campaign on Boxing Day but will be looking to make it three in a row on New Year’s Day after also hitting the target at Morecambe.

Crawley will be without the suspended Josh Payne.

The midfielder was shown a straight red card for a late challenge on Alex Samuel during the 1-0 win over Stevenage.

Goalkeeper Glenn Morris recovered from a back injury to keep that clean sheet on Saturday and looks set to continue, while goalscorer Enzio Boldewijn also made his comeback from a hamstring strain.

Midfielder Jimmy Smith is available again after serving a three-match ban.
