Crawley Town will go for broke with an attacking line-up for today’s League One match at Walsall.

On-loan Reading midfielder Jake Taylor returns alongside Nicky Adams in place of Dannie Bulman and Sergio Torres, which means the three-pronged strike-force of Jamie Proctor, Paul Hayes and Billy Clarke get another chance to gel after Tuesday’s entertaining 2-2 draw at Yeovil.

Reds, looking for a third away win from four, come up against one of League One’s form sides. Eighth-placed Walsall have lost just one game in 2013 and have won five of their last eight, sitting seven points clear of Richie Barker’s 12th placed Reds.

Meanwhile, Saddlers boss Dean Smith names the same starting XI which beat Tranmere 2-0 at the Bescot in midweek.

Crawley Town: Paul Jones, Mustapha Dumbuya, Mat Sadler, Connor Essam, Joe Walsh, Jake Taylor, Matt Sparrow, Jamie Proctor, Billy Clarke, Nicky Adams, Paul Hayes.

Subs: Mark Connolly, Sergio Torres, David Hunt, Dannie Bulman, Aiden O’Brien, Mike Jones, Johnny Maddison.

Walsall: Aaron McCarey, Andy Butler, Adam Chambers, Will Grigg, Jamie Paterson, Febian Brandy, James Chambers, Andy Taylor, Sam Mantom, Craig Westcarr.

Subs: Dean Holden, Nicky Featherstone, Ashley Hemmings, Ben Purkiss, George Bowerman, James Baxendale, Liam Roberts.
