Match Preview: Crawley Town

4 March 2021

Tranmere Rovers will be looking to make it four consecutive wins in Sky Bet League Two when they go up against Crawley Town at Prenton Park this Saturday.

Rovers have enjoyed recent successes over Carlisle United, Leyton Orient and most recently Newport County. Keith Hill’s men sit just outside the automatic promotion positions on goal difference after four wins, one draw and one loss in their previous six outings.

Crawley Town, managed by John Yems, last played on Tuesday night with another long trip to Morecambe for a game which they lost 3-1. Their last six fixtures have resulted in two wins and four losses, leaving the Red Devils in 14th position in the division.

Otis Khan is still out of action with a hamstring strain whilst Kieth Hill gave the following update on James Vaughan.

“James is progressing, but he is feeling more comfortable and he will be assessed on a daily basis until the weekend.”
