Crawley head coach John Yems insists his side deserve everything they have being getting in recent matches.

The Reds made it back-to-back wins and clean sheets in League Two on Tuesday after they beat Salford 1-0 at the People’s Pension Stadium.

Prior to their last two games, Crawley had won just two of their last nine matches in all competitions.

However, Yems admits they have worked hard to get back on a good run.

He told The Argus: “The boys and the team have worked really hard to get back on some sort of form that we were on.

“Prior to the last two game we our form was not that bad, we have just come up against good sides and haven’t been at our best.

“There is no easy games in this league, but the lads have really put a shift in and are deserving everything they get at the moment.”

One player who has worked his way back into the starting line-up in recent matches is former Albion defender Archie Davies.

The 22-year-old joined the Reds in August after being released by the Seagulls over the summer.

Davies has had to be patient and wait for his opportunity with most of his game time coming off the bench.

However, he started in the wins over Tranmere and Salford.

But Yems praised Davies for how hard he has worked to get his opportunity.

He said: “He has impressed us and it shows why I signed him in the first place.

“Archie has come on and has worked really hard off the pitch and he is a really good player for us. “ Davies is not the only former Albion youngster in the Reds squad.

Both James Tilley and Jordan Maguire-Drew joined the Reds last month and Yems admits they have done well.

Reds host Mansfield tomorrow afternoon, looking to make it four wins in a row at The People’s Pension Stadium.

However, Nigel Clough’s side head to Sussex off the back of beating leaders Cheltenham 3-1 and Yems knows his side will have to be at their best to get the win.

He said: “They are a good side. Nigel Clough is a very good manager and will have them organised and he will have them ready to play.

“But we have just got to make sure ready for the game, as I’ve said there are no easy games in this league and every game that we are playing with Covid is a bonus anyway.

“So, we will be setting up to go out there and enjoy ourselves and hopefully things go well for us, and not so well for Mansfield.”
