Inevitable that Harrold will score, 1-1 I reckon.

Really not sure how we kept all 3 points but we've been due some luck for about a year now.
PS - Trevor Kettle is now in my top 3 of shite Refs. I'm not sure who out of Attwell, Ward and Dead man he's taken the place of though.

Well, we only played for 20 minutes but, with some resilience and some luck, it turned out to be enough. I thought Rovers were worth a draw at least.

Agree with the two Crawley fans above. We were worthy of at least a point but just didn't have the luck in front of goal to make our dominance count. If only Bodin's shot hit the post and went in instead of into Flahavan's hands.

Fair play to Rhys Murphy, he punished our rank bad defending. The second was a great finish.

The 2nd is a superb finish, but I can't help but think Nicholls could/should have done a bit better

Are others seeing the bodies of the text centred, or is my browser throwing a wobbly?

Started slowly and as Clarke said afterwards, although the second was a great strike both goals were the result of rank bad defending.

After that initial 10-15 minutes we were in complete control and it's hard to believe our dominance didn't lead to more goals. That was partly due to poor finishing, partly good defending and partly just bad luck.

It was simply one of those days. We were camped in Crawleys half for almost the entire second half but just couldn't get the goal. I think had we got one back before 70 minutes we may have even gone on to win. In the end the penalty 2 minutes from time came a little too late.

Alas, it wasn't to be but continue to play like we did for the last hour of that match and we'll give anyone in this league a good game.

How Murphey managed to reach the goal with that shot against that wind I don't know. God looked down, smiled and the wind dropped for 2 seconds.

Difference was Yorwerth. Youngster on loan from Ipswich (ex Cardiff). A very good centre half in the making. Just stopped things coming past, over or by him all day.
