Blow me down with a feather, Crawley have lost five in six. Tipped widely to succeed for a second consecutive season, the Red Devils Mark II have been up against it in the last few weeks, their League Cup defeat at Palace preceding a woeful run that has witnessed pointless games against Cheltenham, Morecambe and Swindon.
