Rock bottom Chesterfield travel to struggling Crawley

By Ben Emmott

Crawley Town host struggling Chesterfield as the Spireites aim to win their first game since August.

Chesterfield travel to the Broadfield Stadium knowing they have only picked up one point away from home all season in League Two.

Chesterfield manager Jack Lester believes the Spireites were unlucky at the weekend but are on the right path.

“I think our play in the final third was better, we’ve looked at that, I think the energy in the team is getting better and that will only come from the training ground.”

Lester has also confirmed that defender, Bradley Barry is fit for the clash despite almost swallowing his tongue in their defeat to Morecambe at the weekend.

After their recent goalless draw away to Grimsby, the Red Devils seek to right the ship despite their poor home form this season, having only won one of their six home matches.

Crawley will be aiming to make it three matches in a row without conceding when they play tonight.

Reds boss, Warren Feeney, believes it’s time to sort out their home form. “We’ve shown what we can do away from home and now it’s about the boys demonstrating that here in front of the home crowd.

Fans pay their money and of course they’re entitled to an opinion but let’s get behind the boys.”

A win for Chesterfield tonight can take them off the bottom of the table above Forest Green Rovers and level on points with 22nd place Port Vale, if results go their way. Whereas Crawley could move up to 16th place if they get the three points and some help from the teams around them.
