Scott Lindsey thanked his unsung heroes who are helping him through a touchline ban.

The Crawley boss watched from the main stand at Prenton Park as his side won 3-1 at Tranmere Rovers.

He completes a two-match suspension when Doncaster visit Broadfield Stadium on Good Friday.

Assistant boss Jamie Day, coach Carl Laraman and injured skipper Ben Gladwin took over in the technical area.

Day even led the celebrations in front of the away end as Reds moved into a League Two play-off place.

Lindsey said: “They managed that down there perfectly.

“I was in touch with Ben Gladwin throughout the game and I thought it worked well.

“I was actually really calm up here. I enjoyed watching it.

“I was a lot calmer than I would have been had I been down there.

“Jamie Day really enjoyed his bit with the fans at the end so I was pleased for him.”

Lindsey added: “Jamie has been class for me.

“He goes under the radar a little bit but he is a fantastic coach and the lads absolutely love him.

“The staff managed it brilliantly and I couldn’t have done it without them.

“A lot of credit goes to them.”

Helped by a cut-price ticket promotion, the Doncaster game is heading to a sell-out as belief this could be Crawley’s year continues to grow.
