Scott Lindsey believes Crawley are the most relaxed team in the League Two play-off race.

That did not prevent a bit of unease around Broadfield Stadium as they came back for a point against a well-organised Barrow side.

But cool heads and positive thoughts will serve them well as they look to pass and play their way into the end-of-season promotion knockout.

A Danilo Orsi penalty on 64 minutes secured the draw after Emile Acquah’s classic downward header gave the visitors a half-time lead.

Both teams had chances to win, both goalkeepers made good saves.

With two games to go, Reds are essentially playing play-off football already with little room for slip-ups.

They were battling against the drop a year ago so Lindsey believes the current situation is one to enjoy.

Asked whether it felt like the stakes had been raised, the Reds boss said: “Maybe but, out of all the teams in and around the play-offs, I honestly think we are maybe the calmest, based on the fact we are not supposed to be here.

“We are supposed to be in the bottom two according to everybody at the start of the season.

“So we are okay we are enjoying being where we are.

“In two games’ time, we will see whether we are still there or not.

“Either way, we have still had a fantastic season.

“We know what we have got to do.

“We want to get in there because we think for all the work we have done and all the heartache of losing and all the travelling we have done and all the training, all the debrief sessions, all the hard work everybody has done, we now want to be in there.

“We don’t want to let it slide.

“But I think all the staff and the players have been brilliant.

“We are just enjoying it.”

Crawley look a different team this season to, for example, that which secured a 1-1 draw against Grimsby in similar circumstances, with a penalty equaliser, about a year ago.

The patience of their football is not always in-keeping with the impatience in the stands and maybe there is a happy medium there somewhere.

Was a bit of unease among fans down to the play-off race or just frustration at what was seen as a slow build-up at times?

Lindsey said: “I don’t take any notice. I am fully focussed on what is going on out on the green but I know the fans are brilliant and they have been all season.

“I thought the fans were good.”

Barrow were well set-up and some of the passing was imprecise.

But wide players Ade Adeyemo and Harry Forster were bright when Reds stepped on the accelerator in their build-up and the hosts deserved their point.

Crawley may well need six points from their last two games.

But it is doable as they go to a Sutton side on the brink of relegation, then host Grimsby, who should be safe by then.

A win 300 miles from home would have almost secured Barrow play-off place and they were unhappy with the penalty award for handball against Rory Feeley for the spot kick after Paul Farman saved from Klaidi Lolos.

The ball rebounded against Feeley’s arm and play continued fir a few seconds before referee Sam Purkiss, with finger against his earpiece, pointed to the spot.

Barrow later had an Elliott Newby goal disallowed for a foul and Reds keeper Corey Addai made a couple of fine saves.

But Lindsey also pointed to a superb first-half stop by Farman from Lolos after Will Wright chipped a fine ball over the defence.

The Barrow goalkeeper later parried an Adam Campbell blast, with Forster firing the rebound narrowly wide.

Perhaps Crawley’s best move saw some great defending to prevent Orsi turning home Jack Roles’ cross.

Orsi headed wide in added time and, as the final moments ticked away, Dion Conroy drilled a 30-yarder not far past the other post.

Lindsey said: “We did everything possible to try and win a game of football.

“We were up against a strong, defensive unit in Barrow and if we perform like that in our last two games we’ll be fine.”

Crawley: Addai; Wright, Conroy, Maguire; Adeyemo (Darcy 80), Williams (Roles 57), L. Kelly, J. Kelly (Campbell 52'), Forster; Lolos, Orsi.
