March to the Arch - Day 4 - Crawley

I'm starting to have random fidgety outburst of excitement thinking about Sunday, but before looking forward, you have to look backwards and remember how we got here. That's exactly what I'm doing today with the fourth instalment of our route to Wembley where today I'll be remembering our victory over Crawley.

I'm not going to lie, it's probably the one match which you kind of forget happened. It was a cold  night in December just after we'd been ruined by Cambridge in the FA Cup. I find it funny how I remember the experience writing about the game more so than the the game itself. It was in the waiting room at Coventry station after in the middle of waiting an hour for a train. I got back at 11 and managed to produce this in my tired state if anyone wants a more detailed and serious report.

Starting XI:

Reice Charles-Cook

Gael Bigirimana
Jordan Willis
Jordan Turnbull
Lewis Page

Jodi Jones
Andy Rose
Chris McCann
George Thomas

Jack McBean
Marvin Sordell


Lee Burge
Cian Harries
Vladimir Gadzhev
Callum Maycock
Ruben Lameiras
Kyel Reid
Marcus Tudgay

As I've stated, this game was one that just sort of happened, a whole 1338 people turned up, including about 6 Crawley. Sordell got his swansong goal before possibly the worst decision of Slade's tenure by letting him go, a simple tap in from about 3 yards with a ball coming in from Thomas. I honestly don't know what else there is to talk about the game was that dull.

I managed to get through a whole post by humorously talking about our formation and how for most of the second half we played Callum Maycock and Bigi at the full backs and still somehow managed to keep a clean sheet. It was very funny...

I've said all I can really, and I'm going to save your time instead of jabbering on about formations and ask a question to leave you with, how are you getting there on Sunday? Personally I'm going in a hummer limo, not driven by Lateef Elford-Alliyu like the guys at the Nii Lamptey Show tried to do but I'm sure it'll be as good all the same. Fingers crossed the Green Man is packed full of Sky Blue from opening. See you tomorrow where I'll do a slightly more detailed post remembering Brighton and Hove Albion u23 at home.
