Boss Sean O’Driscoll believes Crawley have been handed a favourable start to the season – but claims their run-in is as tough as they come.
Reds will open their League One campaign at home to Scunthorpe United before trips to newly-promoted Swindon Town and O’Driscoll’s former club Doncaster Rovers – fresh from the Championship.
He said: “For the supporters it is a good way to start the season (at home) and Scunthorpe will provide a good test.
“Then we have two difficult away games but you can pull two or three out each month that will be very tough.”
“You look at the end of the season and we’ve got Coventry, Oldham, Hartlepool and Milton Keynes. That is as difficult as you can imagine but it could be any four or five teams and it would be hard.”
