THE FORM GUIDE                

This game brings two sides out of form together. Reds have won four of their last 12, losing the other eight. Crawley have only drawn one game since August 29.

Stevenage have not won in eight and only once in the last ten.


VIEW FROM THE BOSS

"We seem to keep playing teams under new management and sometimes that can make it more difficult but it's something we have to deal with.

"With that in mind, it's hard to predict what sort of way they will play now but it's always a hard game at Stevenage. We are acutely aware that away from home our form has been disappointing and at some stage the talking has to stop and we have to do something to improve that. We've had a good week preparation-wise and there's a bit more experience in the camp with Paul Jones here so that's a positive for us."


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

A stoppage-time goal from ex-Stevenage player Roarie Deacon earned Reds a dramatic 2-1 win when the teams met on Boxing Day at Crawley.
