Another "6 Pointer".
I fancy us to sneak a win here. Our team has been transformed under Saunders and is unrecognisable from the one that got tonked at Orient after Christmas.
A draw or a win will I think cement our chances of avoiding the drop. Lose and it's up in the air again.

I am still beyond caring as we will still go down regardless, some new grounds in League Two next season at least. We always lose these sort of games.

Our fans are getting their knickers in a twist about the ticketing, apparently Crawley won't open the terrace unless enough seating tickets are sold........Do they not realise that we are going to take at least 800 fans to this and most are going to pay on the day? It is our 2nd closest trip of the season, Also people aren't sure if its £22 pay on the day or £18.

Crawley definently not the same side we beat 4-1 on Boxing Day, Pogba, Woods, Ward & Wordsworth have all come in and on their day at this level are all very capable players as well as the ever dangerous McLeod.

At least its a short trip home. Just relegate us now.

We weren't poor as such, but our decision making today was awful. We badly rely on scoring first to win games, we were the better team for 30mins and had about 5 chances, but found ourselves 1-0 down.

Crawley deserve credit for their defending, they put in a very good shift, but we badly struggled to break them down in the second half, I think we had 2 shots if any at all, despite having all of the ball and countless corners. Our crossing was awful today.

But I am a bit beyond caring, enojyed the New Moon pub before the game again though, very good pub that, probably the best in this league IMO for a pub to go to before a game.

A definite case of "winning ugly". Great saves in the first half by Price and then Jensen in the 2nd on as Sub. I'm not sure it was a penalty, but it was well put away again by McLeod. As Terminator says, a great defensive performance and 9 points from 9. Others results went our way - I think we could just get out of this mess.
