Crawley Town have really been misfiring in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 4 against opposing sides during the course of their previous six outings.

Looking at their form, and Exeter City have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals in all. Defensively, The Grecians seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.

Team News: Crawley Town
Crawley Town boss John Yems will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all before this match with a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Exeter City
Thanks to a mainly healthy squad, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Exeter City manager Matt Taylor to be concerned about. Rory McArdle (Knee Injury) won’t be in action. Ineligible players who cannot play in this game through suspension are Ryan Bowman and Alex Hartridge.
We’re envisaging that Crawley Town will have a tough ask to find the net against this Exeter City side who we think will likely score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a good tussle with a 0-1 victory for Exeter City at the conclusion of the game.
Should be an interesting one.
