Crawley head coach John Yems admits his side deserved to get something out of their FA Cup tie against Bournemouth last night.

The Reds lost 2-1 to the Championship high-flyers, who fielded a very strong side which included Asmir Begovic, Jack Wilshere, Josh King, and former Albion defender Steve Cook.

Crawley did have some good chances throughout the game but ended up exiting the FA Cup at the fourth round after a superb run in the competition.

However, Yems believes his side deserved more against a Bournemouth side that was full of quality.

He said: “It was no different to what Leeds had and the thing with it being that yes they have an expensive side and are paying out bundles of money and the way in which they won it is a complement to what we are doing.

“All we have to concentrate on now is what we have to do, which is to move up the league.

“But the boys are very disappointed because we thought they should have got something.”

The Crawley boss did praise the performance of goalkeeper Glenn Morris.

The 37-year-old made some great saves to keep Crawley in the game and Yems was impressed by his display.

He said: “Glenn should be impressed with his display, but everyone should be impressed with his performance.

“He kept us in the game. The good thing is with the lads is they never give in.

“We went 1-0 down against Bournemouth and could have gone behind by quite a few.

“But we didn’t and that is a compliment to the team and a compliment to everyone that we nicked one back.

“On another day we could have even scored a couple more.”

There was a debut for Davide Rodari, who only joined on Monday from Bet Victor Isthmian South East side Hastings, and Yems was pleased by the 21-year-old’s performance.

He said: “He did well. I think he showed a couple of good touches. Half the time he did not know if he was twisting or running, but the boys looked after him.”

Despite being knocked out Yems says the Reds can proud of what they have achieved in their cup run.

He said: “We put up a good show, we have beat some good sides, made some history, and today (Tuesday) on the night we were just not up to it.”
