FOREST Green Rovers manager Mark Cooper will be without Dale Bennett for Saturday’s League Two clash away at Crawley Town.

The hosts’ last outing in the league saw them hold Lincoln City to a goalless draw.

Bennett is banned for one match after he picked up a fifth yellow card of the season against Macclesfield in the FA Cup.

Omar Bugiel will also be missing on international duty with Lebanon.

The side will be boosted by the expected return of Alex Iacovitti from his hip injury and Dan Wishart, while Jordan Simpson has been recalled from his loan spell at Hungerford.
