Harry Kewell has told his Crawley side to forget about their winning run and concentrate on the matter in hand.

Reds have won their last two matches as they beat Swindon, who were leaders at the time, 3-0 on the road and defeated Yeovil 2-0.

They are seeking their first hat-trick of league wins since March, 2015, as they go to Colchester today.

Boss Kewell told The Argus: “It’s important to continue a run, 100%.

“There is no denying that I would love to continue it. But we also know it’s football.

“It has not been in the players’ minds. Hopefully they’ve got an understanding of what I’m about, what exactly I need and what I want to try to achieve.

“It’s nice to be in these situations to break a tradition and to get a little bit higher but they’ve just got to focus on their job and on how we’ve structured on how we want to play this weekend. If they do that, we have a chance.”

Former Albion wideman Dean Cox, 30, sees different reasons for the latest success.

One of the keys was the change from a 4-3-3 system to 4-4-2, including wingers Enzio Boldewijn and Jordan Roberts performing as an attacking duo.

The Argus:

Cox, pictured by Paul Jenking, was back in the starting line-up in Reds’ two wins.

He said: “A change of formation to 4-4-2 that we’ve been playing the last two games helped us.

“The skipper (Jimmy Smith) came back and that also helped driving us forward. We missed his presence in the dressing room.

“The partnership with Enzio and Jordan has been fantastic along with Panutche (Camara) playing right wing.

“So lots of facts have come together and worked well and we’re just looking to continue what we’ve been doing.”

Ibrahim Meite comes back from concussion and will be ready to play today.

Defender Mark Connolly and striker Thomas Verheydt are still out with injury.

Colchester could be the first chance for latest signing Josh Doherty. Kewell said: “He looks good in training.”
