The captain reflects on Saturday's 0-0 stalemate at Sincil Bank

30 October 2017

Jimmy Smith believes the side can be pleased with another clean sheet and a point on the road, following the 0-0 draw at Lincoln City.

The Reds have now kept three consecutive clean sheets on the road, and haven't been beaten away from home in five games and the skipper felt encouraged by the team's work rate and solid display.

"I think it's a good point, everyone worked hard - we knew what their gamplan was - to hit it long and win second balls," Jimmy told iFollow Crawley.

"They wanted to get it up to their big man but I thought everyone man for man worked extremely hard to keep that clean sheet today."

Despite the focus being on the fact the Reds kept the Imps at bay, there were opportunities to win the game, something that Jimmy was more than aware of.

"We had chances to win the game, Panutche [Camara] had a few, I had a few as well so we've got to start taking those chances and we'll start nicking wins."

The midfield man certainly did have chances and forced a fantastic save from the keeper with a great effort from distance.

"I like to make my runs into the box and Jordan [Roberts] fed it into me," he continued.

"It's sat up nicely for me and maybe I've hit it a bit too straight and so the keeper's managed to tip it over the bar."
