TWO-GOAL hero Joe Walsh admitted to mixed emotions after Crawley had to settle for a point at Tranmere Rovers.

Centre-half Walsh, who is in the Wales under-21 squad to play Finland on Wednesday, took his tally to three for the season – equalling his entire return for the last campaign – but ended up feeling deflated after hosts Rovers snatched a dramatic injury time leveller through Ryan Lowe. Walsh, 21, who scored with a header and right foot strike either side of a Billy Clarke tap-in, said: “It’s pleasing to get two goals but it was a disappointing end to the game. We need to keep more clean sheets.”

Clean sheets are in short supply, though, as Richie Barker’s Reds have now played three matches which have featured 18 goals.

Barker was pleased for his centre-half turned marksman, even if the draw felt more like a loss.

“You just go through those spells at times when they drop for you. He may go a few weeks when nothing lands on his head.

“He is composed in everything he does and he was composed with the first header and also for the third goal with his right foot.”
