Crawley Up Next

Trip to West Sussex for McGreal and Co.

11 October 2019

Colchester United take on Crawley Town in their next Sky Bet League Two fixture this weekend

As usual, both sides have good reason to win the three points on offer, the U's want to push into the top seven for the first time this season, whilst the hosts will want to end a run of four league matches without a victory.

If cup fixtures were included, that run extends to six matches, coming after the Red Devils started the season well.

And John McGreal is prepared for a return to form from the hosts on Saturday afternoon, warning: "Crawley are a dangerous side, and haven't played many games this season where they haven't scored."

'They might have been a bit up and down lately, but we know they possess threats and we will have to be completely on our game to get anything there."

"We didn't take Stevenage for granted last weekend and it'll be the same this time round - we have to perform well to win, we won't get the points just because we are higher in the league table than them."
