Five things to know ahead of Monday's game against Swindon

1 April 2018

Reds are going into the game looking to end a run of three successive defeats and improve a sequence of one win in their last eight games. Swindon have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six. The draw came on Good Friday when Luke Norris scored a second-half penalty in a 1-1 draw against Morecambe at the County Ground.

 
After David Flitcroft left Swindon last month to join Mansfield, Swindon appointed the highly-experienced Phil Brown (pictured) as manager. The 58-year-old left Southend earlier this year after five successful years during which he led the club to League One after victory in the 2015 play-off final against Wycombe Wanderers.
 
Norris's goal on Friday was his 13th in the League this season, making him Swindon's top scorer. The Robins currently lie ninth in the table but are only three points off the play-off places and they boast the most away wins by any club in League 2 this season with 11 victories on the road.
 
Reds will be looking to complete their fourth double of the season on Monday, having won 3-0 at the County Ground back in August - Harry Kewell's first win as Crawley manager. The last time the two sides met in the League before this season was in the 2014-15 campaign when we also did the double, winning 1-0 at home and 2-1 at the County Ground.
 
Swindon boss Phil Brown could have Ryan McGivern and Olly Lancashire back in his squad after both trained at the weekend. But Reice Charles-Cook and Ellis Iandolo are both missing because of injury.
 
Harry Kewell will still be without injured trio Billy Clifford (foot), Thomas Verheydt (knee) and Josh Doherty (broken hand).
