History of the Crawley Town v Cambridge United fixture

Crawley Town prepare to entertain Cambridge United 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 less than a year ago, in March 2008, the Reds carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a (Conference) Premier match.
