"The onus is on them and we can play without pressure"

Harry Kewell on game against Luton Town and the importance of sticking together as a club

20 October 2017

Harry Kewell believes that the pressure is off his side and firmly on the visitors when the Reds take on Luton Town at the Checkatrade Stadium on Saturday.

The Head Coach highlighted the Hatters' firepower and squad as being an indication of their ability, and the Australian insisted the onus would be on the Bedfordshire side.

"Nathan's put together a great squad who're very attacking," he told iFollow Crawley.

"They've got some of the best forward players in the division so it'll be a tough game but I would say the pressure is on them.

"In an odd way perhaps you could say it's a free game for us and at the moment our results at home probably don't reflect the performances on the whole."

Despite picking up four points out of a possible nine over the last three matches, the side have only found the net once. Harry pointed to the absence of key individuals as being a major factor behind that statistic.

"Unfortunately for the team and myself our main striker is still out injured at the moment," he continued.

"For the past few games we haven't had that focal point to aim for and to hold the ball up at the top end of the pitch.

"That's why we're having to be patient and bide our time when we go forward. 

"We know some sides play certain formations when they come here at the moment.

"They know we're a team that likes to play football and wants to pass and move.

"We'll take it as a compliment of course - but we know that it has to come with points."
