Crawley Town need a win against Colchester tonight in order to stay on track and stay in the Football League for next season, writes Samir Abraham.

Crawley currently sit two points above the relegation zone. With four games to go, a string of good results is needed for them to avoid the drop into non-league football.

Last weekends 2-1 comeback victory against Tranmere Rovers will provide Crawley with needed momentum.

Keeper Corey Addai’s last minute penalty save will have instilled more confidence in the squad after a slip early in the game gifted their opponents the game’s first goal.

Players like Harry Ransom that have found themselves getting more game time under new manager Scott Lindsey are also gaining confidence, exemplified by his involvement in Crawley’s winning goal on the weekend.

Lindsey spoke on the end of season run-in.

He said: “The lads are in good spirits; we’ve come in and got organised for what’s going to be another big game.

“It’s great to have something to play for, albeit at the wrong end of the table, but it gives us a purpose.

“We want to try and get as many points as we can until the end of the season to get that safety and ensure we get League Two football next season.”

Colchester sit just two places above Crawley in the league having had a similarly inconsistent season but have hit a recent run of form, having not lost in their last five games and winning the last two.

Ransom says Crawley understand the importance of these upcoming games: “Every game from now until the end of the season we have to be giving 110% with everything we do.

“The games are coming quickly, and they’re all must win games.”
