📝 Match Preview: Crawley Town (A)

City on the road to West Sussex

18 October 2021

Exeter City will be looking to extend their ten match unbeaten streak but turn some of the draws into wins as they travel to Crawley Town on Tuesday evening.

The match at the People's Pension Stadium, which kicks off at 7.45pm, will be City's second of three games this week following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Newport County at St James Park. 

Crawley were beaten 1-0 by Sutton United on Saturday as they suffered a rare home defeat, which included a missed penalty by former Grecian Tom Nichols. However, John Yems' side have been purring of late and it will be a tough test for Matt Taylor's side.

Alex Hartridge's Thoughts 

City defender Alex Hartridge says the Grecians will have to be on top of their game to nulify the threats of Crawley Town's attack on Tuesday night.

"They play direct but are very dynamic and have some quick players up top. Obviously Tom Nichols is a handful. They are decent at home, but we've got no reason to be scared of them and will go with full confidence and expect to get the result."

City are on the back of a ten-game unbeaten run, and Alex feels that the next win could spark a run of wins. "It might be what we need to kick us on. The more games we play the more we are going to even out on our luck."
