Crawley Town head coach Dermot Drummy is hopeful his side can seal a League 2 home win for the first time in over a month this evening.

Reds welcome fourth-bottom Crewe Alexandra to the Checkatrade Stadium having not won a home fixture since January, 14.

Drummy's side have taken just one point from a possible 15 at the Checkatrade Stadium in their previous five matches, a run the Crawley boss is keen for his team to put to an end.

He said: "Let's hope we get the win at home for all of the fans who come out to watch us. We've got to make sure we prepare right, the physical levels are important when you have games on Saturday, then Tuesday.

"The game against Crewe tonight will be the sixth time we've had a game on the Saturday, then three days later.

"We've done a real troll with alot of the same team, it's been a real tough physical period for us but hopefully we'll get the win, then we can get the rest ratio back in again."
