"He wants me to get the ball and drive at the opposition"

Man of the match Enzio Boldewijn on goal and Port Vale defeat

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Enzio Boldewijn revealed that his solo effort that saw him score against Port Vale on Saturday afternoon was the type of play new Head Coach Harry Kewell had been encouraging.

The Dutch winger picked up the ball just past the halfway line, before cutting inside and burying a low drive into the bottom corner to get the Reds back into the game against the Valiants.

"I'm happy with my goal, that's what the manager has been encouraging me to do," he told iFollow Crawley

"He wants me to get the ball and then just turn and run at opposition defences - and that's what I like.

"I want to be a dangerous player who creates chances and scores goals."

It was a game where the hosts found themselves two goals behind inside the opening half an hour - the midfielder revealed the hosts knew their opponents threats, but they didn't begin the game how they wanted.

"Before the game we knew they were dangerous from set-pieces," he continued.

"We didn't start quickly enough and the first half wasn't good enough from us.

"But then after half time we began to control the game and we created a lot of chances."

The Reds travel to the Midlands to face Birmingham City on Tuesday evening, and Enzio emphasised that the game against Harry Redknapp's men provides the perfect opportunity to atone for the weekend's defeat.

"We can set today right on Tuesday evening.

"It's a good place to be able to go and play and it's a game we're all looking forward to."
