AFC Bournemouth legend Steve Fletcher believes the Cherries will be coming up against a confident Crawley side on Tuesday night.
Fletch spent eight months with Crawley in 2008 making 21 appearances in the Conference. While Fletch went on to re-join AFC Bournemouth in 2009, playing a significant part in the Cherries fight against relegation out of the football league, to promotion from League Two the following season to reaching the League One Play-Offs twelve months later.
Since his departure, Crawley have celebrated back to back promotions to League One and have started the season well with five wins from their opening nine games and are currently seventh in the table.
Fletch told afcb.co.uk...
"I`m not surprised they have done so well because a similar thing happened to us a couple of years ago, If you had told a Crawley fan that they would have been promoted from the Conference and League Two and then been in the top seven or eight after ten games, then they probably would have laughed at you.
"But we know what it`s like. We got promoted from League Two and were on the crest of a wave and made it into the play-offs in League One the following the season.
"They`ve got a lot of players who are now seasoned pros, they`re not a young outfit and they will be a tough nut to crack...'
