Barker: Reds were so unlucky

Crawley boss Richie Barker claimed his side were unlucky to lose 3-1 at Coventry City tonight.

John Fleck gave the Sky Blues an early lead before David McGoldrick struck either side of a Billy Clarke goal.

Crawley dominated the majority of the game and Barker admits he couldn't fault his players.

Barker said: "We dominated possession and I think they only had three shots on target and scored all three.

"They didn't have a shot in the second half until 20 minutes in but unfortunately it went in.

"But I don't have any complaints about my players. I am proud of the way we came here and played.

"If we do that on a regular basis we will win more often than not. Sometimes it is just not your night."

He is right about it not being our night. We came up against a match winner in McGoldrick who was top notch all through the game.

It's done and it made for a sombre trip home on the coach but its all about bouncing back at Notts County. Something which we are pretty good at.

Richie and the boys can be proud of the progression made this season
