Whittingham hails Crawley's character

First published in Sport by

Assistant manager Guy Whittingham hailed Crawley's fighting spirit after they battled back from 2-0 down at Coventry City to earn a point.

Coventry looked on course for a comfortable victory when Andy Webster headed home from a corner with nine minutes to go to add to a first half own goal from Mat Sadler.

But substitute Jamie Proctor pulled one back almost immediately and then Andy Drury struck to make it 2-2 with five minutes to go.

Whittingham said: "They are a top six side so coming here and getting a draw is a good result.

"We were disappointed to concede from two corners but the positives far outweigh the negatives today.

"To go 2-0 down and to come back the way we did proves what a good bunch of lads we have got here."
