History of the Crawley Town v Forest Green Rovers fixture

Crawley Town play host to Forest Green Rovers at Broadfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The two sides drew on their own previous meeting.

The only previous meeting between Crawley Town and Forest Green at was back in October 1997, over five years ago, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a (Southern) Premier match.
