Boss John Gregory wants Crawley to keep the ball better

John Gregory insists Crawley will not sacrifice their attacking instincts.

The Reds boss also believes there is more to come from his team as they follow Saturday’s excellent 2-1 win at Walsall with a trip to eighth-placed Swindon Town tonight.

Gregory hopes his side will improve their ball retention as they get back in the swing of matches after a series of postponements.

He said: “We approach every game the same whether it is home or away. We play the same way. We went to Walsall and tried to attack.

“At times Walsall were better than us in keeping the ball. That is something we are slowly learning, how to keep the football. Our training sessions have been very good but then you have to replicate it on a match day. That is a small criticism I could make that we didn't move the ball as well as we have been.”

Billy Clarke misses tonight's game as he starts a two-match ban for his red card at Walsall.
