Barker praises matchwinner Clarke
Crawley boss Richie Barker praised Billy Clarke after he scored both goals in the 2-0 home win over MK Dons.
Clarke struck in the 21st minute and 90th minute in what was his first start in the league for ten games.
Barker said: "Billy has been chomping at the bit for a while. I asked him to do a little different job and he did it and topped it off with two goals.
"If I was him I would be a little bit disappointed (goalkeeper) Paul Jones was named man of the match."
Barker changed his formation to 4-1-4-1 to counter MK Dons' 4-2-3-1 set-up and was pleased with the way it worked.
He added: "We said we were going to try to press them and stop them playing out from the back. We knew they didn't have much physical presence up front so we wanted to make them hit it long.
"People may argue we shouldn't change our tactics at home to counter the opposition but we won the game so I think it is justified."
