Barker proud of Crawley charges

Crawley snatched a fortuitous winner three minutes from time at

the Keepmoat Stadium when a shot from Josh Simpson deflected off

the boot of Nicky Ajose on its way into the net.

Barker said: “I thought we were by far the better side in the

last 20 to 25 minutes and deserved to win the game. I was extremely

proud of all of them.

“Defensively we were fantastic and we got stronger as the game

went on, whereas Doncaster started to look tired.

“They were a threat at set-pieces, but we worked hard to stop

them getting crosses in and tried to play down the side of them

because they had some big defenders.

“I set the players a challenge of not getting beat twice in a

row and they’ve responded. I thought we showed we can play a bit

and win a bit ugly as well.”
