Crawley Town return to their League Two campaign today following their exit from from the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday when they host Leyton Orient.

Reds will be looking to gain their first home win of the season.

Orient are aiming to clinch their first ever win at the Checkatrade.com Stadium after being unsuccessful in three previous visits.

The O’s are currently third in the table and have won twice, drawn twice and lost once on the road this season.

They include a familiar face to Reds fans in the form of defender Connor Essam who joined them over the summer from Conference club Dover.

He made 11 appearances for Crawley during a one and a half season spell before leaving in September 2014.

Mark Yates will be without goalkeeper Freddie Woodman plus defenders Liam Donnelly and Josh Yorwerth who are away on international duty for England Under-19s, Northern Ireland U21s and Wales under-21s respectively.

However he expects to have striker Gavin Tomlin available for a league game for the first time this season, having recovered from surgery to his groin.

Callum Preston will make his league debut in Crawley’s goal.
