Harry Kewell was bullish following Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Carlisle United as the Reds slipped to a second straight home loss.
The Australian recognised that the performance against the Cumbrians wasn't good enough but had a defiant message.
"Nobody's more disappointed and frustrated than me," he told iFollow Crawley.
"But we won't shy away from the fact that we have to roll our sleeves up.
"We know our responsibilities for this club and we're ready to fight."
The Reds threw caution to the wind in the closing stages of Saturday's game with all three changes attacking ones as the hosts searched for an equaliser that never came.
"We must hold the ball up better, it takes pressure off everyone," he continued.
"If you can hold the ball up front it takes pressure off the midfield, that gives the defenders more time and then you have more time to keep the ball and the play the way you want."
