Forest Green prepare to entertain Crawley Town at The Lawn on Tuesday evening, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Of the two previous meetings, the Rovers have won one and drawn one.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Lawn was less than a year ago, in December 2004, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Conference match.
