Gregory: We had nothing to lose (includes match highlights)

The Argus: Andy Drury celebrates his goal Andy Drury celebrates his goal

Boss John Gregory hailed the character of his side as Crawley came from behind to beat leaders Leyton Orient 3-2 at Brisbane Road.

Goals from Gary Alexander, Andry Drury and Nicky Adams sealed a first league win in ten attempts to lift Reds to 12th place in League One.

Gregory said: "It was a great performance and it was great for the fans who possibly travelled up here not expecting too much.

"Not many people gave us much of a chance here so we were able to go out and be positive. I felt they took the lead against the run of play but once we got it back to 1-1 we took over.

"We could have won more comfortably as we had a couple of good chances when it was 3-1 but in the end we had to hang on a bit at the end.

"But this group have got great character and have showed a lot of resilience since I took over."
