“Self defeat” – Crawley Town manager pulls a shocking reaction to Forest Green Rovers  defeat…

Crawley Town manager Scott Lindsey believes that his team’s loss to struggling Forest Green Rovers in League Two was not due to the opposition’s superiority, but rather their own mistakes.

Despite taking an early lead with a goal from Ronan Darcy, Rovers secured a 2-1 victory with Callum Morton’s first-half double.

This defeat extended Crawley’s winless streak throughout October, encompassing six games in all competitions. Lindsey expressed his frustration with the loss, emphasizing that his team essentially ‘gifted’ Rovers their goals.

Lindsey acknowledged that they started the game well and executed their game plan effectively in terms of attack and pressing. However, they faltered in their passing from the back, leading to the two goals they conceded.

The manager pointed out that their performance in the second half suffered as a consequence of these errors, making it a challenging match. In his view, Forest Green didn’t defeat them; rather, Crawley defeated themselves, which was particularly disappointing.

Lindsey expressed his frustration with repeating these words, stressing the importance of avoiding costly mistakes, particularly when they have a 1-0 lead. He pledged to rectify the situation and ensure that they perform better in future matches.

In addition to addressing the game, Lindsey also extended his gratitude to the Crawley supporters who made the effort to attend the match despite adverse weather conditions.

He applauded their dedication and expressed disappointment that the team couldn’t deliver a result that the fans rightfully deserved. He made sure to stand in the rain with them for a few minutes as a gesture of appreciation for their unwavering support.
