George Francomb suspended as Crawley host basement boys Morecambe

Crawley will be without the suspended George Francomb for the clash with bottom-placed Morecambe.

The midfielder, playing his first game since September 21, was sent off in the second half of the midweek hammering by Oxford in the Trophy.

Defender Josh Doherty could return after missing the last two matches through injury.

It remains to be seen whether forward Ollie Palmer and winger Gyliano Van Velzen will be available after recent injuries.

A-Jay Leitch-Smith is pushing for a starting place as new Morecambe boss Derek Adams takes charge of his first League Two game.

Adams named an unchanged side for his Shrimps dugout debut in the midweek Trophy clash with Carlisle and was rewarded with a 3-1 victory.

But Morecambe were 1-0 down until Leitch-Smith entered the fray in the 55th minute and the forward made an impression, linking up well with Cole Stockton.

Midfielder Rhys Oates remains a long-term absentee.
