Crawley Town striker Matt Harrold is declared as fit to play at Mansfield on Saturday.

This is despite him suffering a broken nose on Tuesday night during Reds’ FA Cup replay at Bristol Rovers.

Harrold has already missed the whole of September and October through knee and Achilles tendon injuries and had played just three matches off the bench.

Head coach Dermot Drummy said: “Matt is available to play and he epitomises the fantastic mentality of our players.”

Defender Andre Blackman returns from suspension, while Mansfield Town loanee striker Adi Yussuf is not allowed to play against the Stags as part of the agreement between the two clubs.

Recent signing Sanchez Watt, a former Arsenal midfielder, is still awaiting international clearance before he can make his second debut, having previously played in India for Kerala Blasters.

Watt previously played 14 games for Reds on loan from the Gunners in 2012 but has yet to feature since being singed at the beginning of November on a short-term deal.
