Kewell and assistant Warren Feeney left the Reds to take charge of Notts County. Kewell was replaced by Gabriele Cioffi, who has won two of of his three games in charge, including the impressive 3-1 win against Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Kewell picked up his first win as Notts County boss when his side beat Crewe 2-1 on Saturday.

But Cioffi does not believe he has a selection headache for the Notts County game.

He said: "I have everything clear in my mind so everyone has to be ready to picked, it’s our rule. We are happy, we will enjoy these three points until midnight then we have to switch on the brain for Notts County.

"They are home, they have to win and we want to come back with points. This league is a long league. You have to be constant. Point, point, point, point, point."

There will be a bit of spice in the fixture with Crawley Town fans and Kewell, but Cioffi says it will be a pleasure to meet his predecessor.

He said: "I don't know him but it will be a pleasure because I was a poor player and he was a top player. It will be a real pleasure to meet him."
