Crawley Town form and stats

As the visiting team in League Two matches, Crawley Town have produced an overall stat of 4-4-5 so far.

The supporters enjoyed Crawley's previous game versus Colchester United (placed 20th), a League Two 1-0 win played at home. Preceding that, the 0-1 home loss versus Stevenage.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager J. Yems when James Tilley scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 63rd minute. Late drama in the previous game, when James Tilley scored the winning goal three minutes into stoppage time to defeat Colchester United.

After this away game Crawley return home for a League Two game against Exeter City. That game is only four sleeps after this.

The visiting Crawley have scored more than one goal per away game in the league so far. The grand total is 16 goals from 13 games. In the opposite end, Crawley have conceded 20 goals in their away games.
