Danilo Orsi says a place in the promotion play-offs would top his FA Cup excitement last season.

But he believes Crawley fans will have enjoyed what they have seen so far as they go into the final two games of the regular League Two season.

Orsi reached 20 goals for the season, of which 18 have been in the league, in the midweek 1-1 draw with Barrow.

Reds go to Sutton today knowing they might need six more points to secure that top-seven berth.

They then end the season at home to Grimsby Town, he club Orsi helped to the sixth round of the FA Cup last term.

He scored in a 3-0 replay success over Luton and also started their win at Premier League side Southampton and subsequent defeat at the Amex.

But there is something extra special about maintaining standards across nine long months.

Asked if the play-offs would be the biggest matches of his career, Orsi said: “I played in FA Cup games against big teams but, for me, the league and doing it across 46 games and to be in that final play-off spot with a team like Crawley would be massive.

“I know all of us would relish the chance to do that and we are all working really hard to hopefully achieve that.”

Orsi’s tally dwarfs his four league goals for Grimsby last season and he has no doubts about the reason for his progress.

Reds coach Carl Laraman, who previously worked with youngsters at Charlton and Arsenal, has played a big part.

Orsi said: “I think firstly playing week in, week out as a striker give you the chance to know you are going to get into a bit of rhythm.

“And then working with the gaffer and mainly Carl Laraman as well.

“We have got a great working relationship.

“I kind of know what the gaffer wants from me and I know how we play.

“We play in a fashion that suits me.

“I think the coaching staff have been great with me this year, building up my confidence, and they have allowed me to do what I do best and score some goals.”

Despite some grumbles when patience is shown on the pitch, Orsi believes supporters enjoy the football put in place by boss Scott Lindsey.

He said: “Maybe they think we could move the ball forward a bit quicker at times.

“But it is a style where we create lots of chances and we create good chances.

“It’s not just kind of lumping the ball long and trying to win a flick-on and someone else running in behind.

“It’s good football and we score good goals.

“I think most fans would be really happy with the style of football the gaffer has brought into this club and the way we are playing.

“If I was a fan and I was coming to watch this each week, I’d be really happy.”

Crawley are without the suspended Jay Williams for the last two games.

Players enjoyed some cryotherapy to help ease bumps and bruises and they will be cheered on by a travelling support of about 1,000.

Lindsey said: “I can’t wait to walk out and see them.

“It’s amazing when you see a big following away from home.

“I will be going over there and showing my appreciation before the game.

“Hopefully we will be celebrating three points with them after the game.”
