‘No reason to fear them’ – Plenty of Crawley fans react to Stoke City draw

Published

on

League Two side Crawley sprang a shock in the EFL Cup this week, beating top-flight Norwich City 1-0 at The People’s Pension Stadium.

They took an early lead through Beryly Lubala and then held out against the Canaries to set up a third-round tie with Championship strugglers Stoke City.

Crawley narrowly avoided relegation to the National League last season and are currently 12th in League Two, but they’ll relish the chance to pit their wits against Stoke City, who are rock bottom of the Championship.

The Potters progressed to the third round courtesy of a penalty shoot-out victory against Leeds United, a result that only provides a brief respite from a horrible start to their league campaign.

The early pressure is on Nathan Jones and he’ll be hoping to see his side avoid a humiliating defeat against Gabriele Cioffi’s Red Devils.

It’s going to be a tricky trip to West Sussex at the end of September and these home supporters are relishing the chance to get their teeth into another big scalp.
