Glenn Morris stressed the importance of bouncing back from Saturday’s disappointing defeat to Wycombe, admitting that Reds didn't exploit the opposition as well as they could have in the 4-0 defeat at Adams Park.
He saidf: "It just seemed that once we let that first goal we couldn't seem to get our game going and enforce it on them which is disappointing because in the first half we were in the game and we had a decent chance to go in front. In the end, it is a really disappointing at the office."
Reds conceded four goals, including a hat-trick from Craig Mackail-Smith in the space of ten minutes after the break.
“We just didn't get the ball down and play and expose their weaknesses and we were quite open and they exploited that,” added Glenn.
The keeper took the captain's armband for the day in the absence of the injured Jimmy Smith but said the honour had been tarnished by the outcome.
"It's a privilege and an honour to be captain but not after a result like this which is obviously very disappointing,” he said.
“It would have been nice to come away with something but to be captain of Crawley means a lot, it was also the first time in my career so it was nice.
"We have a disappointing result but luckily we can try and put it right and we need to. We've got to get back to work, starting on Sunday, because it’s a big game on Tuesday against Exeter.”
