"We had a gameplan that the boys stuck to perfectly"

Harry Kewell proud with draw but felt side could have beaten Luton Town

21 October 2017

Harry Kewell was pleased with his side's application and determination in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Luton Town at the Checkatrade Stadium. 

The Reds created numerous chances throughout the game against the league leaders and the Head Coach felt his side could have even won the contest.

"We're standing here saying how well the boys played but I also think we can be a little disappointed we didn't win that today," he told iFollow Crawley.

"I thought we played our gameplan to a tee and we played them off the park at times.

"We looked dangerous throughout - there were difficult conditions today and we looked really determined, maybe we just lacked that killer instinct at times."

The boss made two changes to the side which fell to defeat to Chesterfield on Tuesday evening - one of whom was striker Panutche Camara, and he was full of praise for the forward.

"I thought Panutche Camara was brilliant today," he continued.

"He plays with a fearlessness and real ability - you can see his quality and attributes.

"The one thing he has got is rawness - he's like a free spirit at times and as a manager you have to let that blossom."

The performance against Nathan Jones' men drew a great round of applause from the crowd at full time and the Australian insisted that his players must now be able to reproduce those efforts on a weekly basis.

"I always knew that my players had showings like this in them," he insisted.

"They now need to do that every game from now on.

"If they keep performing like that then we'll have both a happy manager and a happy club as well."
