Barker warns Reds they must improve after opening win
Boss Richie Barker warned Crawley they must tighten up defensively despite opening their League One campaign with a 3-0 victory over Scunthorpe United.
Two goals from Gary Alexander and a late effort from new signing Jonathan Forte wrapped up the points with the Iron being reduced to ten men late on when Ryan Duffy was shown a second yellow card.
Scunthorpe were left to rue a host of missed chances and although he was delighted with the result Barker admits there is still plenty of room for improvement.
Barker said: "It wasn't perfect and I was a bit disappointed with the amount of chances they created but in terms of the result it was excellent.
"We looked a bit nervous which is understandable and in League One you are never going to dominate a game all the way through no matter who you are playing against.
"In the second half they had more chances than us and in truth it could have finished 6-3. We've only had five training sessions together so far so we just have to continue to work hard to improve."
