Crawley have been told they can be the side who keep their nerve in the race for a play-off place.

Reds will climb into the top seven if they beat title-chasing Stockport County at the Broadfield Stadium tonight (7.45pm).

They have emerged as serious play-off contenders amid a congested part of the table and are League Two’s form team with five wins from their last six games.

Crawley boss Scott Lindsey (above) said: “I have been really pleased and I think this is now what we call the business end of the season.

“This is when you will find teams have a wobble, drop points. I want us to be the team who hold our nerve.

“Up to now, I have seen that.

“Even the game we lost at Morecambe, I thought we were definitely worthy of something.

“The performance was good, albeit the result wasn’t.

“We are in a good place at the moment.

“The atmosphere at the training ground and around the place is really positive.

“We have got to feed off that and make sure we really attack these remaining games now.”

Reds are two points off the play-off places but have up to three games in hand on teams above them.
