Preview: Milton on Crawley Town

29 August 2019

Assistant manager Russell Milton is looking forward to taking on a Crawley Town side this weekend high in spirits after their Carabao Cup giant killing against Premier League Norwich City on Tuesday night.

Saturday's opponents secured their place in the third round of this year's Carabao Cup with a 1-0 win against Norwich at the People's Pension Stadium.

It's a result that will no doubt leave the Red Devils in a confident mood heading into this weekend's clash, and Milton says the Robins are well aware of the threats they will need to look out for.

"Crawley are a very exciting team," he said. "They've started well and had a great result 24 hours or so ago.

"They'll have to try and put that to the back of their minds now and concentrate on us as their manager alluded to.

"They will cause us problems. They've got a lot of energy and we will have to combat their threats and impose ourselves.

"They won at Leyton Orient last week as well which is a good win. As we know it's a tough place to go.

"We'll prepare as we can and see what we can do. It was an entertaining game last year - we did play well without hurting them too much."
