Scott Lindsey says Crawley have come a long way on and off the pitch since last season.

Reds’ home clash with Gillingham arguably looks the game of the day in EFL League Two.

Lindsey has looked to develop his side’s play since leading them to safety last term.

They have played some delightful stuff on their way to a haul of seven points from three games which should really be nine given some of the near misses in the draw at Salford.

Lindsey said: “We are a different set-up completely We had a way of playing to keep us up but we are not in that position any more.

“We are playing how I wanted to play when I first came in but I couldn’t.

“Privately we have aims and ambitions.

“We know what we can achieve.

“The first thing for me is to make sure we can improve on last season.

“That’s a must. While it already looks like we are, there is still a long way to go.

“I look at it the results but also the environment.

“It is a totally different place to when I came in January and that’s down to a lot of hard work and experience from myself and my staff and, of course, the players as well.”

Lindsey expects to add to his squad before the window closes but could face Gillingham without wideman Kellan Gordon, who went off during the midweek win over MK Dons and has had a scan.
