Another away game, another win for the Grecians? Crawley lost to Grimsby last time and needed a last minute winner at home to Colchester prior to that and we all know how atrocious Colchester are. Surely this is another win for us? If we play like we did against Colchester then it would be difficult to see Crawley beating us, however, i did watch the fairly recent FA Cup game where they beat Leeds and they are capable of putting in a performance like that.

No Bowman again. I think Seymour needs to start as it would damage confidence to be dropped after scoring the winning goal v Col U. I actually would like to see Fisher start too although i think Matty will opt for pretty much the same line up as tuesday night maybe?

Thoughts?

He could bring Fisher in for rotation purposes, but as you say that would be bad luck for Seymour, who doesn't really need rotation. Think Caprice will start in order to give Key another break.

What's the pitch at Crawley like, I wonder?

Personally I would like to find a way for both Key and Caprice to start. Key is great going forward but I still worry about his defensive positioning so prefer Caprice at RB. But who to leave out? I guess Randall with Willmott switching to the left? If not, same starting 11 for me.

Hartridge back on the bench in place of Kite, as unlike Bowman his suspension was only for 1 game (Goal-Scoring Opportunity)

From the limited evidence I've seen so far Josh doesn't look quite as effective further forward but there's still time for him to develop an understanding with Jake behind him.

Despite having played for 3 or 4 other clubs since leaving ECFC, does the 'returning player syndrome' - "he must score against us" - still apply to Tom Nichols?

I'd stick with the same 11 that won on Tuesday.

With Stubbs, Hartidge, Bowman and Williams returning in the next few weeks rotation will happen naturally.

Team rotations

Caprice for Key
Sparkes for Page

Maybe McArdle could a start.
