VIEW FROM THE BENCH
: "How we do at home in the remaining ten games is going to be crucial to how our season ends up. What we need from the fans on Saturday is the same atmosphere they provided at the MK Dons' game. My job is to make sure the players produce a performance that gets our supporters fully behind them."Dean Saunders
Glyn Snodin (Preston asssistant manager): "If you look at Crawley they have got some decent players and a decent squad list so it's never going to be easy wherever you play. We will be looking to go down there and fight to bring those three points back."
WE’VE MET BEFORE?
This will be the sixth meeting between the sides, all in League One. Reds won both fixtures in the 2012-13 campaign, 1-0 at home and 2-0 away. Last season we drew 2-2 at the Checkatrade.com Stadium in John Gregory's first game in charge but lost 1-0 at Deepdale. Preston won 2-0 when the sides last met in September.
