BRADFORD City are back on the road again this weekend, and it is another lengthy trip down south, as they take on Crawley Town in League Two.

The Sussex side sit 16th in the league, with their biggest problem being that they can't stop drawing. All of their last three games have finished 1-1, taking their total number of league stalemates to 11.

It will be an interesting test for City's mean defence. They have only conceded two in their last seven league games, but come up against a free-scoring Town, who boast the league's joint-third top scorer in Bez Lubala (10).

The Bantams did concede when they last faced Crawley, on October 19, but it did not matter in the end, as they emerged with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Harry Pritchard and Danny Devine.

It was a long away day up to West Yorkshire for no points for the Crawley fans, and the Bantams supporters will hope they don't suffer the same fate tomorrow.

So, without further ado, here is your comprehensive guide to Crawley Town away.

The main concern for the big day is how to get there, how long it will take to get there, and where on earth you’re going to park.

TRAIN: You have a couple of options here. Both require you to get a train from Bradford to Leeds, then an LNER service down to London King's Cross, but that is where your options differ.

You can get off the King's Cross Service at Stevenage, catch a Thameslink train from there to Horsham, getting off after an hour and a half at Crawley train station.

Or if you fancy a ride on the Tube, you can stay on the LNER train all the way to King's Cross, catch the Victoria line from King's Cross St Pancras to Victoria Station, then catch the Southampton Central Thameslink service from there to Crawley.

The second option is roughly about 10 or 15 minutes quicker, but it is really up to you.

From Crawley station it is a 25-minute walk. Turn left out of the station and head down down Station Way before walking down Brighton Road, then turning right on Southgate Road.

That will virtually put you on to Southgate Roundabout, from where you can see the stadium. Realistically, it might be easier to get a five or six minute taxi ride from station to stadium.

CAR: At Carr Gate Interchange, near Wakefield, take the third exit on to the M1(S) ramp to London/Barnsley.

After around 165 miles on there, at junction 6A, exit on to the M25 toward M40/Heathrow Airport. Fifty miles later, at junction 7, take the M23 (S) exit to Brighton/Gatwick Airport.

Merge on to the M23, then 15 miles later at junction 11, take the A264 exit to Horsham.

At the roundabout, take the fourth exit on to Brighton Road/A23, then at Southgate Roundabout, take the first exit. Turn left and your destination will be on the right.

Remember the address for the stadium is Winfield Way, Crawley RH11 9RX.


The car park at the stadium costs £5 but there is also an overflow car park in the offices at Broadfield Park, just beyond the stadium, which is accessible from the A23 as you come down the hill from the motorway.

It holds 350 cars and is free of charge. It is also handy after the game to get back out on to the A23. Look out for the Broadfield Park Business Centre sign and left hand turn as you near the stadium on the A23.

Otherwise there is street parking or the option of renting a private driveway nearby via

After the end of the game it can take quite a while to exit the stadium car park. So those looking to get home sharpish might prefer to street park instead.


There is a bar at the stadium at the back of the Bruce Winfield Stand called the 'Redz Bar', which allows in away fans before (but not after) the game. Entrance to this bar is gained from outside the stadium.

The closest pub to the stadium is The New Moon on Brighton Road (A2219). This is about a five minute walk away going towards the town centre. Another pub close by is The Downsman, which is on Wakehurst Drive, just off Southgate Avenue.

To find these pubs, come out of the stadium car park entrance and turn right and go back up to the main roundabout. Cross the dual carriageway using the underpass and go straight on into Southgate Avenue (A2004).

For The New Moon, take the first left off Southgate Avenue into Brighton Road and the pub is further up the road on the right.

For The Downsman, also go to Brighton Road, then take the first right into Wakehurst Drive. Continue along Wakehurst Drive to find the pub on the left.

Please note that alcohol is not available inside the ground for away supporters.
