Recent respective form guides

Ebbsfleet United need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While The Fleet have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Crawley Town's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Reds have conceded 9 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Ebbsfleet Utd. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Blue Square (Conference) Premier with a return of just 8 points from their 14 games thus far. Crawley Town's 21 points from 14 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position.
