Crawley in good shape for Cobblers clash

Match Preview
Crawley host Northampton with a relatively clean bill of health.

Crawley host Northampton with a relatively clean bill of health.

Skipper Jimmy Smith is the only absentee as he continues to recover from knee surgery.

Smith suffered the injury against Oldham at the start of September but hopes to be back in action for Town in March.

Crawley can climb to 11th in League Two if they beat Northampton.

The Cobblers can welcome back Junior Morais after suspension.

The forward has completed a three-match ban following a red card at Lincoln last month.

Midfielder Matt Crooks is closing in on a comeback from an ankle injury and could be involved.

Defender Dean Bowditch is also nearing a return.
