Harry expecting positive reaction on Saturday

23 March 2018

Harry Kewell expects a positive reaction from his squad when we return to action on Saturday against Cheltenham Town at the Checkatrade Stadium, kick off 3pm.

His team suffered only their second home defeat in the last 13 League games against Wycombe on Wednesday.
But the players have a quick opportunity to return to winning ways against a Cheltenham side unbeaten in four and who recently won at play-off hopefuls Swindon Town.
Harry said: "It is a quick turnaround after Wednesday but that won't be an issue. My players are fit and ready to go again.
"When I played you always wanted a quick opportunity to get back on the pitch after a bad result. We've got that and although it was a defeat on Wednesday I was pleased with a lot of what we did. The most important thing - and I think the fans saw that - was we kept trying to play.
"We're in pretty good shape for tomorrow. It's the start of a busy period with three games in nine days but we are looking forward to the challenge that brings."
Reds need a win to keep their play-off hope alive but HK expects a stern test against Cheltenham, whose boss Gary Johnson was in the stands on Wednesday to run the rule over Crawley.
"They are on a good run and have some quality in their ranks, as every side in this league does," added the Head Coach.
"We need to improve in certain areas and we've been working on those since Wednesday. Three points would be great with Easter coming up and that's the focus - nothing else."
