Crawley Town defender Jon Ashton and striker Matt Harrold will be available for tomorrow’s trip to Leyton Orient.

Ashton sat out last week’s game against Plymouth Argyle after going off injured following a challenge which earned Accrington Stanley’s Shay McCartan a red card the previous Saturday.

Harrold also missed the Plymouth match having injured his leg in training.

Lanre Oyebanjo could be involved for the first time this season having successfully got through 90 minutes of football in a friendly against Eastleigh this week.

He is expected to be on the bench having finally recovered from a knee injury which required an operation last summer.

However Tom Dallison has ended his one-month loan from Brighton early having broken a toe during his impressive debut last weekend.

Manager Mark Yates said: “It was only a slight tweek and it was just precautionary we kept him out.

“He has come through a good week with the physios and us and he will train today and will be available tomorrow.

“Jon is fit and raring to go - he was always going to be in contention. I signed Tom Dallison as a precuation and what happened, happened (fractured his toe).

“It’s a massive boost to have Lanre back, he probably hasn’t kicked a ball in ten months in anger for the last ten months.

“He increases our options, although he isn’t fit as regards gametime.

“His attititude has been excellent and he’s keen to get back in the fold.”
