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.”
