Crawley Town head coach Dermot Drummy is looking forward to meeting up with Portsmouth boss Paul Cook when they host their south coast rivals tonight.

He is an admirer of the Pompey manager and his football and is looking to the Reds fans to play their part in helping get a good result.


Crawley Town go into the game in midtable in 16th place following their 0-0 draw against leaders Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.


Portsmouth are in the play-off places in fifth but are reeling from a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Crewe Alexandra.


Drummy said: "I'm looking forward to seeing Paul Cook, I like his style, I like the man.


"They play good football, it'll be a good atmosphere and it's a game everything will want to be part of.


"If we can out-sing the Pompey fans, that will be brilliant.


"I've seen Kelly Derham (operations director) smiling, so the crowd must be good.


"We are going to get some money through the gate and that's what we want every week. We have got to aspire to that.


"I'll look forward to the game if this stadium's full it will be rocking."
