"Another opportunity to test ourselves against a good outfit"

Warren Feeney looks ahead to Tuesday evening's game with Portsmouth

2 October 2017

Warren Feeney revealed that there may be changes to the side that takes on Portsmouth in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening at Fratton Park.

But he also stressed that the game is a good opportunity for the side to chart their progress so far this season against League One opposition.

"I think there be some changes - but it's a good chance for us to test ourselves against a good outfit so we'll see what the manager decides after training today (Monday)," he told iFollow Crawley.

"It also depends on how the boys are after the weekend - so they're decisions that will be made but we'll be going there to win the game.

"We'll have the same mentality as against Charlton - they'll be a well organised outfit but it's another good chance for us to go up against a good side."

The game comes three days after the 1-0 home defeat to Carlisle United, and the Assistant Coach was keen to emphasise the benefit of having a game so soon after the loss to make ammends for the result.

"It's always nice to have another game after the weekend and the result because we were disappointed," he continued.

"They've (Carlisle United) had one real chance and scored - we huffed and puffed, had two great chances in the first half but couldn't capitalise.

"It's still early days and the manager's still getting his ideas across and we believe we're trying to make the players here better footballers with the way we're getting them to play."
