1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

This was my first visit to Crawley (#53/92)  Prior to our draw with Shrewsbury we had our best run in history with a 9 game win streak so was looking forward to this game.

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Left Gloucester at 2.30pm and got to Crawley, parked (in a free car park) by 5.15. A417, A419, M4, A329(M), A322, M3, M25, M23 and finally A23.

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

Went to the half moon on the Brighton Road (10 minutes walk from the ground) which had no issues with away fans wearing colours. 2 pints 7.40 and 2 burgers from the BBQ 6.

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

Still has a "Conference" feel to it, very much like Kidderminster Harriers ground. Wolves fans were given the full terracing which is behind the goal and around part of the side. We also had 600 seats in one of the stands along the side.

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

The game itself was not what we had hoped for going down to our first defeat in 11 games. 2 . 1. Took the lead but were soon pegged back, and then behind. The performance was poor from our team but the small pitch did not help. Crawley did play well and deserved the three points as they pressed us and did not allow us to play the football that Wolves fans have been accustomed to this season. With a capacity away following the facilities were struggling to cope with the 1,960 Wolves fans that were there. Although the stewards were generally okay.

 6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

No trouble getting away and was back on the M23 in 10 minutes.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Only two good things came from this.... another one ticked off the 92...... and the final whistle!
