Farrend Rawson says Stanley are desperate to get back out onto the pitch and put all of the frustration from recent weeks into a positive performance against Crawley.
A couple of away defeats and a postponed fixture mean that it’s been over a month since the Reds last picked up three points, when they beat Wycombe 1-0 in November.
Asked about the week that followed defeat at Lincoln and Rawson’s overturned red card, the on-loan defender was bullish: “What I can say is that all of the lads are raring to go.
“We know how good we are and what have in our locker, we just want to put this drought to bed now and show everybody what we can do.
“It’s been a really frustrating and long week of training waiting for the chance to put it right, but we have been working hard and I know that it has to click because of the quality we have, when it does it’s going to be exciting.”
Rawson, 21, has made 13 first team appearances this season since arriving from Pride Park on Deadline Day, and feels that his time at the Wham Stadium has been a valuable one.
“I’m enjoying my time here,” he said. “The club has made a massive impression on me.
“We have a great set of lads in the dressing room and I’ve really enjoyed the coaching from all of the management. I’ve played a lot of games and I can’t speak highly enough about the club and the experience that I’ve had here.”
His loan spell is due to expire on January 3rd but the centre back admits he is keeping an open mind when it comes to his future plans.
“I’m pretty sure some conversations will be happening at some point and we will talk through all of my options, I’m open to anything, I’ve enjoyed my time here so we will see.”
