Crawley head coach John Yems has praised his side’s never-say-die attitude after Tom Nichols’ late penalty helped them to get a 1-1 draw against Walsall at The People's Pension Stadium last night.

The draw leaves them five points outside the play-off places in League Two.

They had won their previous four home games in succession but Yems was pleased to get something out of the game.

He said: “We haven’t got beaten.If you never give in then you have a chance. We earned a point in this game.

“There are no easy games; Walsall had a right go at us and we created some good chances.

“We had two great chances in the first half and if it had to be decided on penalties I’m glad it was a draw.”

Yems is certain his men will continue to show “plenty of heart and desire” in their final 12 games but is making no predictions.

He added: “We are not getting carried away, the promotion lark.

“There are 12 games to go and a lot of things to be decided. No one has the divine right to be promoted.”
