Recent respective form guides

Salisbury City's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Whites have scored 9, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Crawley Town's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Salisbury City find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 20 points from their 16 matches. Crawley Town are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 30 points from 16 games.
