In Opposition: Crawley Town

John Yems' Crawley Town travel to the JCS as Tuesday's opponents

30 November 2020

Steve Ball's side looking to bounce back from defeat at Exeter with their next league game at home to Crawley Town.

Manager - John Yems

Top Scorer(s) - Max Watters (10)

Last Result - AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Crawley Town 29/11/20 (FA Cup Second Round)

The U's will be back in action on Tuesday evening when they welcome Crawley Town to the JobServe Community Stadium. 

In their last game, they were beaten 6-1 at the hands of Exeter City before a weekend with no match. 

John Yems' side have been in action over the weekend, when they made the short trip to the new AFC Wimbledon stadium for their second round FA Cup tie, coming out 2-1 winners and ensuring their name is in the hat for the third round draw. 

Their 2-1 win at the weekend was the first for them in four matches having last won a game early in November against Ipswich Town in the final group game of the Papa John's Trophy. 

And the Crawley boss was delighted with the performance of his team against higher league opposition from the weekend. 

"It was a fantsatic performance after the last few that were hopefully just a little blip. It shows you what the lads can do when they put a shift in, and there's plenty of life in us." - John Yems

"We never give in, and if we are going to get beaten, get beaten by a team that will open you up. Not like the last few when we have been very sloppy and we have deserved what we got out of them, which was nothing. 

"We've moved on, and now we are in the hat for the third round."

Coming in to the game against the U's, Crawley sit fifteenth in the league with eighteen points from fourteen games. They have picked up five wins, three draws, and been defeated six times.

Max Watters is the man in form for the Red Devils this season, having bagged his tenth of the season at the weekend against Wimbledon. He has hit double figures in just twelve games for Yems's side, with seven of those coming in the league. 

The twenty-one-year-old joined Crawley in mid-October after being released by Doncaster, where he had been for the past two seasons. 

Supported by the likes of Danny Bulman and Ashely Nadesan there is a healthy blend of youth and experience in Tuesday's opponents, who will want to build on their good result from the weekend.
