Skipper hails "fantastic" Crawley
Skipper Gary Alexander hailed a fantastic team performance after his brace earned Crawley a 2-1 win at Preston North End.
Alexander struck twice in the space of five minutes early in the second half to put Reds in command with Preston grabbing a late consolation through Paul Huntingdon.
The victory lifted Crawley to fourth in the League One table and Alexander said: "I thought it was a fantastic team performance.
"You've got to give credit to the back four and goalkeeper and if I had not lost my man at the end there we would have had a clean sheet.
"Luckily we were already two up at that point and it didn't cost us."
Crawley were missing suspended duo Hope Akpan and Josh Simpson along with the injured Claude Davis and Sergio Torres but ran out deserving winners.
Boss Richie Barker added: "I thought we were the better team for probably 75% of the game. We had to withstand some pressure but you expect that away from home and we stuck to our task well."
