History of the Crawley Town v Eastbourne Borough fixture

Crawley Town prepare to entertain Eastbourne Borough at Broadfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The majority of those games have been won by the Reds.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Broadfield Stadium was just last season, in December 2009, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a (Conference) Premier match.
