Match Preview: Crawley Town vs Stevenage

16 February 2021

Sponsored by

Boro's George Boyd takes on Crawley's Paul Armstrong in a 2-1 away win in August 2005.
Even though Stevenage fell to a 1-0 defeat against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday at the University of Bolton Stadium, Boro were left with plenty of positives after the game in an encouraging performance.
 
After the game, Manager Alex Revell stated "If you were a neutral watching this, you would have said we were the team chasing a play-off place. That is how I felt we played at times.
 
We have created 16 chances away from home and we have not made the keeper work enough and ultimately if you do not take your chances when they come your way, it is always going to be an uphill battle, especially when you give them a goal. We have to learn for the future".

John Yems' Red Devils currently occupy 12th place in League Two and are winless in their last four outings, with Crawley's last victory coming in a 3-0 FA Cup Round Three shock in January against Premier League side, Leeds United.
 
Due to coronavirus postponements, the two sides are yet to play other this season, with Boro's last win against Tuesday's opposition coming in a 2-1 win at The Lamex Stadium in early 2019 courtesy of a James Ball brace.

Alex Revell has no new injury concerns as Jamie Cumming edges closer to a return, whilst Scott Cuthbert travelled to Bolton as an unused sub on Saturday. Jack Roles made his Boro debut on Saturday coming on as a second half substitute, while Jahmal Hector-Ingram is still pushing for his first appearance since signing on loan in January.

Manager Alex Revell highlighted the positives of a hectic schedule, "The best thing now is that you get a game three days later to bounce back. That's the only message we have to say to the players. It's down to you. We're three days since losing, let's go and win.
 
Meanwhile, Crawley Town boss John Yems will not be in the dugout for tonight's clash, due to being handed a two-game touchline ban after his behaviour following the League Two match vs Leyton Orient earlier this month.
