After a hectic start to the season and interesting week Reds can now focus on Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 trip to Oldham Athletic.

Jimmy Smith and Filipe Morais have been placed in temporary charge and will prepare the team for the trip to Boundary Park after the departure of Head Coach Harry Kewell and his assistant Warren Feeney to Notts County on Friday. 

The lads will be hoping to put in a similar performance to the one they produced against Bury, when the Reds scored twice in the last ten minutes to seal victory over the Shakers thanks to Ollie Palmer’s late goal - his fifth of the season.

The Latics have enjoyed a mixed start to the season, winning two, losing two and drawing two of their six competitive fixtures, with five of those coming in the league. Their last match saw them overcome Morecambe 2-0 at the Globe Arena thanks to two goals in two first-half minutes from Chris O’Grady and Gevaro Nepumaceno.


Crawley and Oldham have previously met six times, all in Sky Bet League One, but have not played since 2015. The records are pretty even, with two draws and two wins each.

The most recent meeting came in April 2015 in a huge game at the bottom of the league where Crawley overcame their opponents 2-0 thanks to goals from Izale McLeod and Richard Wood.

The corresponding fixture that season was a 1-1 draw at Boundary Park thanks to Gwion Edwards leveling the scores minutes before the half time break.


Gevaro Nepomuceno (pictured) grabbed his first Oldham Athletic goal of the season in their win over Morecambe last Saturday, in what is expected to be a big season for the Curacao international.

Having signed for the club from Portuguese side Maritimo, Nepomuceno is well travelled having also played for Petrolul Ploiesti of Romania where he played Europa League football, as well as a spell in the Netherlands witn FC Den Bosch and Fortuna Sittard.
