Their prior results show that Southend United haven't been beaten in the league by Crawley Town in their last two head to head league matches. They also haven’t won at home in their past nine matches in the league. Something needs to change as they try to claw themselves away from the relegation zone.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Oldham Athletic in League Two competition, Crawley Town and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

Conor McAleny (40', 47'), Cameron Borthwick-Jackson (41') and Dylan Bahamboula (95') scored for Oldham Athletic in a dominant victory for Keith Curle's men.
Looking at their form, and Crawley Town have been scored against in five of their last six games, seeing opposing sides hit 13 goals in total. At the back, The Red Devils just haven’t been too solid at all. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game. Coming into this contest, Crawley Town are without an away win for the past three league matches.
The last league match featuring these sides was a League Two match in October 2020 when it finished Crawley Town 1-1 Southend United.
