Crawley Town vs. Swindon Town

Checkatrade.com Stadium




Swindon Town head to Crawley Town this afternoon as the team return to League One action.

Vital Quotes:

"Hopefully we`re not too depleted with injuries and we go and give a good account of ourselves in the next two - Crawley and Gillingham."

Swindon Boss Mark Cooper

Crawley Town Team News:

Crawley Town are coming off 2 impressive wins against opposition who are or who should be in the Championship. Crawley managed to turn over Ipswich Town in the Capital One cup earlier this week as well as a victory over recently relegated Barnsley. Matt Arnold and Gavin Tomlin are unlikely to feature as both fight off injuries.

Player to watch: Izale McLeod

The dangerous Izale McLeod has already scored 2 goals this season, one in each game the club have played. McLeod may have found the perfect place to reignite his career.

Swindon Town Team News:

After an impressive start to the season it will be interesting to see how Town perform on the road after an abysmal season last year away from home. Brad Smith and Anton Rodgers are both short to long term injuries. Louis Thompson is suffering from a dead leg whilst Jack Barthram and Jordan Turnbull who both suffered head injuries at Luton should be available for selection.

Player to watch: Michael Smith

2 games, 4 goals, enough said. Can he keep it up? Attracting attention from other clubs already this season. Smith will be hoping to impress potential suitors although Town are not looking to sell the former Charlton man.

Match Facts & Stats

Swindon Town have never lost to Crawley Town. Town have 3 wins and 3 draws against The Red Devils

Match Prediction:

1-1, being pessimistic and after last seasons away form we are going to go with a draw although hopefully Swindon will win the game and start to improve their away form.
