 Red Devils continue their unbeaten run, thanks to the defense and a load of luck

Crawley will not have a luckier game all season, totally dominated by a rampant Swindon team that tore the Red Devils apart for 70 minutes, the other twenty the home side managed a couple of chances and were awarded a dubious penalty which won the game.

Brian Jensen was again “Man of the Match” as he pulled off save after save throughout the game, the 667 Swindon supporters, the team and manager Cooper will have gone away from the Checkatrade.com stadium wondering what happened, feeling that they were robbed and that referee Lingington gave a penalty that most of the 2100 Crawley fans would agree that it was extremely harsh and their player LouisThompson was sent off for the foul on Izale McLeod when it looked like he actually won the ball. Izale got up and took the penalty and scored his third of the season.

The first half was all one way traffic as the Crawley midfield was totally over run by the Swindon counterparts – former Red Devils Nathan Byrne gave the Crawley’s Sonny Bradley the run around down the right wing – if only he had got his crosses over, instead of letting the other defender get across and block most attempts. When the Robins did get shots on target, there was Jensen – showing why John Gregory signed him - he is going to save us on many more occasions this season. Swindon forced corner are corner as Crawley failed to get into the game. The first home attempt was on 30 minutes when a McLeod had a shot saved by visiting keeper Foderingham, then in another breakaway by Gavin Tomlin found himself with a one on one with the keeper, instead of shooting, he tried to go round the keeper and dived for a penalty and was correctly booked by the match official. The first half ended with the score line surprisingly still all square.

The second half started in the same vein, with Swindon dominating the game, then on 49 minutes came the controversy, another great double save by Jensen, from the corner he caught the ball and kick it straight up field to McLeod who’s first touch was excellent, he was through on goal, then before he shot was tackled by the defender, which lead to the penalty aware and the send off – by the match official who was on the halfway line.

Down to 10 men, Swindon still was in control of the game, still missing chances and Jensen saving everything being shot at the home goal. Crawley could have extended the lead when Guion Edwards shot came back off the underside of the crossbar. Manager John Gregory brought on subs – Banyo for Tomlin, then Bawling and O’Conner for the last 10 minutes of the second half, the three subs made a difference and started to close down the Swindon controlling midfielder’s.

Crawley saw out the rest of the game, including added time, the home defence had held firm despite the bombardment by Swindon, another clean sheet, that’s 300 minutes now without conceding a goal – and 3 win so far all 1 – 0 with McLeod showing why he was signed by Gregory.

Next At Home – Tomorrow night when Bradford City visit

The Bantam’s travel to the Checkatrade.com stadium for tomorrow evening’s League 1 encounter with the Red Devils – with Crawley on a winning streak, albeit a bit fortunate against Swindon, they will hoping to continue the great start to the season – John Gregory will be looking at the team that played on Saturday and will decide whether to make any changes to the midfield quartet. Josh Simpson is likely to miss out again through injury, but both Bobson Bawling and Emmett O’Conner won’t have done their chances any harm for a call up after their cameos on Saturday. The defence at the moment picks itself having kept 3 clean sheets and their own confidence will be sky high, especially with Brian Jensen backing them up in the Crawley goal. Worryingly the midfield and forwards are getting brushed off the ball with ease and the manager will have to sort this problem – it’s not going to happen overnight but they will have to compete with a physical side tomorrow evening.

The visitors are just behind in the league, having won and drawn their opening two league matches – last Saturday they drew 0 – 0 at Walsall. They also progressed in the Capital One Cup with a 1 – 0 win at Morecambe. One player the Red Devil fans will be aware of is Bantams summer signing of Billy Clarke – who played the last two seasons here at Crawley, on his day he can be brilliant, other’s he can be frustrating – hopefully tomorrow it will be the latter.  The match kicks off at 7.45pm, hopefully a bigger attendance that the 2700 for the Swindon game will be inside the stadium. Tickets available up until kick off from the ticket office.
