Lewis Young faces his old club this weekend and insists despite his feelings towards them, Crawley will go there looking for a win.

The Reds man played 17 times for Yeovil in a season that ended in play-off triumph and promotion to the Championship.

He said: “They have had an upturn in results recently, from talking to Wardy (Darren Ward) who was here last year they seem to have turned a corner and fingers crossed they keep picking up results, just hopefully not on Saturday.

“I would be dissapointed if they went down of course, they’ve got a massive part in my life because my son was born there, it’s a place that I hold close to my heart.”

Crawley go into the game with a poor away record of four successive defeats and have not won on the road since October.

The defender said: “The main thing I’m looking forward to is trying to put an end to our bad away record, it’s something that we’ve looked at and it’s something we want to make amends to because our home form has been brilliant of late.”

When talking about why there is a dip in away form the 26-year-old couldn’t quite put his finger on a reason.

He said: “Sometimes we set up the same and go a bit to expansive but I don’t know, it is something the manager has had a look at and spoken to us about over the last couple of weeks but even more so this week leading up to the game at Yeovil.

“Any game we go into we have to play thinking we can get three points, I know I believe in my team-mates and I think they believe in each other as well.”

Crawley currently sit in in 15th place and are six points off the play-off positions, Saturday’s trip to Somerset is a three o’clock kick-off at Huish Park.
