PREVIEW: Crawley Town

29 September 2015

Chris Gadsby takes a look at Tuesday's opposition...

Looking at the visitors

during September. Three of the four games that they have played this month they have conceded three or more goals and this will encourage County’s strike force. Gwlon Edwards is their top striker finding the net three times already this season, but with the entire team only finding the net six times so far this season and Newport scoring seven, a low scoring game appears to be on the cards.rd to 23thCrawley Town come into the game on the back of four straight defeats that has seen them slip from 14

Last meeting

It was Crawley Town who were victorious the last time the two sides met in April 2011 in the Conference. Having played twice in the same week earlier in the season and in the FA Cup, it was Crawley who won the series by two games to one.


Last Time Out

Newport recorded their first win of the season with a brilliant away win at Carlisle United. Loan signing Tyler Blackwood came off the bench and headed in the only goal of the game to give the Exiles their first victory of the campaign and left manager Terry Butcher very relieved. He later told the press that he ‘thought the referee had a calendar not a watch!’
