Crawley News and Form

Crawley are down in the bottom half of the league two but are only three points behind 9th-placed Colchester. So there isn’t much between the two at all. Crawley have been struggling with their home form though as they have lost three of their last four on home soil (W1).

They have conceded at least two goals in each of those defeats. Interestingly though, the one win that they have picked up in their last four games, it was in a home fixture against, yes, Colchester. In this season’s League Cup, Crawley opened with an away win at Walsall.

They then beat Premier League side Norwich 1-0, before winning a penalty shoot-out to get past Championship side Stoke. So they have been putting things together. They have won through in five of their last six home ties in the League Cup.

Colchester News and Form

Colchester have been going well this season, until just recently. They have only picked up one win in their last four games played now. Before that, they had lost one of a run of ten games. They did get a win on the weekend in league action at home. This has been some League Cup campaign from them.

Colchester have gotten past two Premier League sides to reach this stage. They opened with a home win over Swindon and then were heavy underdogs for a visit to Crystal Palace. Colchester got through on penalties. Then they played host to Tottenham in the last round and again succeeded in a penalty shootout.

That was a huge night for them. It was 0-0 draws against Palace and Spurs that they had dug out, meaning they haven’t conceded in his season’s competition. The victory at Palace snapped a six-match winless run of away ties in the League Cup.
