Reds' midfielder believes the squad can achieve so much more
Midfielder Simon Walton says there is a lot more to come from the Crawley squad despite our recent record of four wins in five games.
Reds moved up to 16th place after Simon’s second penalty in successive games earned us a 1-0 win over York City at the Checkatrade.com Stadium.
Simon said: “It was a good three points but we’ve not got anywhere near our full potential yet. There is a lot more we can produce, both as a group and as individuals.
“We weren’t at our best on Saturday and York may feel they deserved a point. But when you know you can do even better and still pick up three points then that’s a positive.
“Wins breed confidence and we’ve got a really together group here. The lads who have come in on loan all want to be part of what we’re trying to achieve and
that is important as well going forward.”
Simon’s late penalty came against his pal Scott Flinders, a team-mate from his days at Hartlepool.
“I think he let me score,” laughed Simon. “I gave him a lift back up north after the game and he probably thought he’d have been left in Crawley if he’d saved it!”
Reds now turn their attentions to the FA Cup and a home tie in the first round against a Luton side beaten 2-1 when we met in the League three weeks ago.
He added: “They are a decent side, as we saw on the day, and it’s going to be close but the FA Cup is a big thing for us and we’re looking forward to Saturday.”
