Conns: We're building a identity but there's a lot still to do

Defender insists squad will stay grounded as they look to keep good run going

Defender Mark Connolly insists there is no chance of Reds getting carried away with their recent form.

Saturday’s 2-1 win over Accrington Stanley was Crawley’s fifth in six games, their best run of form since relegation three years ago.

The Irishman, who is in his second spell with the club, believes the squad are benefitting from a collective hard work on the training ground and pitch, but believes there is more to be achieved.

“It’s going well at the minute,” he said. “It was good on Saturday that there were more than 2,000 home fans in the ground. Hopefully the fans will keep coming back because I think they can see the way we are trying to play is getting us good results.

“We are trying to build an identity, a bit like Accrington have done in the last few years – and to build the club up.

“We’re going in the right direction but there’s a lot of work still to go. We’ve got another 16 games left – that’s a third of the season, 48 points to play for.

“We won’t stop working hard and we’re not getting carried away. The job has just started really but there is a good feeling around the club which is nice.”
