"We'd love to continue our run - but it'll be our toughest test so far"

Head Coach Harry Kewell looks ahead to Saturday's game with Colchester United

8 September 2017

Harry Kewell is looking for his side to continue their promising run of form when they travel to Essex to face Colchester United on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds will be looking to make it three league wins in a row - something they failed to achieve last term, but the Head Coach emphasised that the U's would prove tough opposition.

"It's important to carry on our run, and we'd love to do that," he told iFollow Crawley.

"I believe that Colchester will be our toughest test so far.

"They've got an adventurous style of play and it should be a good game - they've got to make the first move as the home side and we have to react to that."

The side suffered a frustrating start to the 2017-18 campaign, and the win away to Swindon Town a fortnight ago in their last game on the road was their first of the season.

The Australian pointed to the Reds putting the ball in the back of the net as being the difference - rather than a complete overhaul of playing style.

"The first four results weren't what we wanted, but we were always confident in the way we were playing.

"We haven't changed much but we're getting the results now and have started taking our chances.

"We've brought in some fresh ideas and we're all moving in the same direction," he continued.

"We're still a way off from where we want to be but we're working every single day to get better as both a team and a club."
