Defender on 3-0 defeat at Crewe Alexandra

16 December 2017

Reds defender Josh Yorwerth insists the side will do their best to brush off Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Crewe and get back on track.

The Welshman cut a frustrated figure in the wake of the loss, but was keen to focus on a positive reaction.

"It's just one of those days, we've just got to keep going with training all this week and we've got to keep going." Josh said.

"We went through a patch where we were creating chances and not scoring and I feel today that crept back in a little bit but we're going to pick ourselves back up and go again."

The Reds enjoyed spells of dominance and opportunities at goal, contrary to what the scoreline suggests.

However those chances weren't converted and despite being two goals down at the break, Yorwerth insists the side still felt they could've got back into the game before Jimmy Smith's controversial dismissal.

"We started the game well, we had a couple of good chances, but just couldn't score after being on top for the first 20 minutes or so.

"They've got the goal which is a bit of a sucker punch and then scored the second but we've gone in at half time and the boss told us we're still the game and that we've got to believe.

"We've come back out in the second half and again started well but with the two sendings off we just couldn't get in the game."

Few in the ground were able to offer an explanation for Smith's sending off, and despite some in the Crawley camp feeling hard done by, Yorwerth believes the team can't pin the result on the officiating.

"Jimmy's a fiery player and a strong player - we can't blame the referees, but I didn't think it was a sending off."
