Mark Connolly insists that the side must stick together and keep spirits up after Saturday's narrow 1-0 defeat away to Cheltenham Town.

The game against the Robins was the side's second league defeat of the camapign, but with 44 league matches still to play the defender was keen to highlight that Harry Kewell's men would turn their fortunes around.

"It's frustrating because I thought we kept and moved the ball well in the first half," he told iFollow Crawley.

"Cheltenham then slowed the game down, as many teams in this league do, and it's always difficult to then get back into the game.

"There's been a lot of change and everyone's working really hard to get it right, and I know we will."

"We've got to stick together as a group and the manager gave us a good talk after the game," he continued.

"We will make this right and hopefully the results will come.

"We know we need to get points on the board - I think we deserve more out of our two league games so far.

The Irishman also had a message to the fans after the loss to Gary Johnson's men, as he stressed the importance of sticking together and being patient. 

"We keep saying it - but it is going to take time to be successful.

"I know the fans travel a long way to watch us and of course you're going to be disappointed when you lose, but if they stick with us we wil get there.

"We'll stick at it and everyone around the club has to stay together - that's the biggest thing for us, and then we'll turn it around."
