Crawley Town midfielder Billy Clifford aims to continue their impressive away form when they travel to Grimsby Town today.

Reds have gained three wins and a draw and two defeats on their travels in League 2 this season.

They go into this game having won their last two away games at Morecambe (1-0) and Barnet (2-1).

Clifford scored the winner last week in Lancashire direct from a corner kick on his first league appearance of the season.

He wants to keep this good run going and recognised how important Reds’ fans are during their trips.

Clifford said: “Grimsby is a very difficult place to go to. They’ve got a good support, they are a big, strong physical side.

“Our away form has been pretty good; hopefully we can carry on that run and if we can turn around our home performances and results at home we can slowly creep up the table and be a problem.

“Saturday will be a a very difficult game; we’ve got to go there fully focussed and up for a battle.”

Clifford acknowledged the wonderful support of the away fans which have helped them on the road this season.

He said: “The away fans are fantastic. 60-odd travelled up to Morecambe and you can really hear them throughout the game.

“Hopefully we can carry on that level of performance on Saturday.”
