Jimmy Smith could make his return to the Crawley bench for their final Sky Bet League Two game of the season against Tranmere on Saturday.

The midfielder has been out since September following knee surgery but could be included in Gabriele Cioffi’s match-day squad.

Crawley will be without Josh Payne (ankle) and Tarryn Allarakhia (hamstring), however.

Matty Willock could be pushing for a start after coming off the bench in Saturday’s 4-2 defeat at Carlisle in his return from injury.

Tranmere, who have already secured their place in the play-offs, will be without centre-back Mark Ellis for the trip to Crawley.

Ellis limped out of the 1-0 defeat to Forest Green on Good Friday with damaged cruciate knee ligaments.

Defender Luke McCullough remains absent with a similar knee injury.

Ishmael Miller has returned to training this month but will not feature again this season following a hamstring problem.
