Crawley picked up their first away win of the season as they beat the previous unbeaten Peterborough United. What did the Devils manager think about the match and result?
The Manager Speaks
Crawley edged up two places in League One after this excellent win and their boss Richie Barker was bursting with pride after today`s win.
"I thought my players were fantastic today," Barker enthused. "We had a gameplan and we executed it perfectly. I said before the game that Peterborough were the best team I`d seen in three years in League One and I stand by that.
"So to be the first team to beat them to be the first team to keep a clean sheet against them is a great effort. They have the best two strikers in the league in my opinion.
'I think we had by far had the most shots, probably we could have had more. It certainly wasn't smash and grab but we certainly did deserve the game.
"I've reiterated right from the start that nobody is beyond being dropped and anybody who does well in the team will keep their place in the team.
"I said to them before they're an extremely talented bunch of players and they took it on board."
"People will look at the score and think it was a good result but I would say it is even better than it looks because Peterborough have been in such good form this season.
"Peterborough were fantastic against Reading on Tuesday when I watched them so we knew it wouldn't be easy but I don't think anybody who was here would say we didn't deserve to win the game.
"We had a gameplan which we worked on in training during the week but the players have still got to go out there and carry it out and they did it superbly.
"I don't think many teams will come here and keep a clean sheet this season so to stop two £1million strikers who are probably the best in the division was an immense effort."
