Crawley v Stanley

21 October 2016

Another weekend means another long League Two trip as Stanley hit the road again.

John Coleman's side travel to the Checkatrade Stadium to take on Crawley Town.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Reds" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fab72e-6c49658d-0122"]After the last gasp drama of a win over Blackpool last time out, the Reds are far from the Wham Stadium as they look to back that result up with another three points.

The Reds tackle one of League Two's trademark long trips looking to return from Crawley with a win.

Another good result will keep up their improved form and could keep them in the play-off place that they currently occupy.[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Form" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34ebb72e-6c49658d-0122"]Stanley are unbeaten since their last league away game, at Cambridge at the start of the month.

Since, they are unbeaten in three with wins at Chesterfield in the Checkatrade Trophy and at home to Blackpool in the league and drawing at home to Cheltenham.

They sit seventh in League Two ahead of kick off with just a couple of points separating a clutch of teams in the standings.[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]
