VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "Dean SaundersIt's a tough place to go. They are a hardworking side with some good individuals and they have had some excellent results this season. For parts of last Saturday's game at Rochdale we did okay. The emphasis this week has been on improving those areas of our performance that can make a difference and help us get three points."


Graham Alexander (Fleetwood boss, pictured above): "Having the two lads (Pond and Ball) fit again and Liam available to us can only help us in the long run because of the options it gives us."

  

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the fourth meeting between the clubs. Reds won 1-0 thanks to Izale McLeod's goal at the Checkatrade.com Stadium back in September while two Conference clashes in the 2010-11 campaign saw a 1-1 home draw and a 2-1 win for Crawley at Highbury.
