History of the Crawley Town v Ebbsfleet United fixture

Crawley Town prepare to entertain Ebbsfleet United at Broadfield Stadium on Thursday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 5 of the 10 previous games, with the Reds winning just 2.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Broadfield Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2008, with Ebbsfleet Utd. inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Reds in a (Conference) Premier match.
