The Complete Record Of Crawley Town's Visits To The Moss Rose

6 September 2019

Crawley Town have made the long journey up to the Moss Rose on just two previous occasions and ahead of their third visit tomorrow, we look back at both of these.
 
The first time that we entertained The Red Devils was back on 10th March 2012, as Gary Simpson's men fought against EFL relegation.
 
The match did not start favourably for the home side, as Claude Davis' twenty-yard strike handed Crawley the lead in the 37th minute.
 
Worse was to follow just after the interval, as Kyle McFadzean launched an absolute thunderbolt to double the visitor's lead.
 
To their credit, Macc fought back and would reduce the arrears five minutes from time when Vinny Mukendi rifled home from close range.
 
This set up a grandstand finish and Simpson's men would restore parity right at the death, when George Donnelly launched a venomous strike which flew into the back of the net from an acute angle.
 
The last time that the two sides met at the Moss Rose was last December, when Sol Campbell made his home debut at the club.
 
On a bitterly cold and wintery afternoon, The Silkmen would claim three precious points in their fight against relegation courtesy of a 2 - 0 victory.
 
Elliott Durrell opened the scoring just after the half hour mark, as he seized on a loose ball twenty-five yards from goal before hammering it into the back of the net.
 
Crawley subjected the Macc defence to copious amounts of pressure in the second period, yet the game was to end as a contest five minutes from time when Harry Smith's glancing header found the far corner.
 
This means that our compete home record against Crawley is as follows -
 
Played 2. Won 1. Drawn 1. Lost 0.
