Jimmy Smith believes that the type of result earned at Grismby Town on Saturday afternoon is one of the most valuable over the course of a 46 league game season.
The Reds drew in a 0-0 stalemate with the Mariners at Blundell Park in a game of few chances, but the captain believes it demonstrated the side's ability to dig deep and grind out a result.
"It's a good point because everyone worked really hard for each other today," he told iFollow Crawley.
"Sometimes you may not be at your best but it's all about continuing to pick up points.
"When you have three games week it's all about being in the mix and getting something from the game and we did that today."
The game against Russell Slade's men was a physical one, with little given away by either side throughout and the midfielder highlighted the battling qualitites he and his teammates showed in the north-east.
"We knew what they'd be about today," he continued.
"I don't think the pitch was very well watered and we knew they'd be a threat from set-pieces.
"We did try to play football but we also all had to battle, which we did, so it's a point on the road that we're happy with."
