It wasn't to be for Reds on Tuesday, as our Carabao Cup run ended with a fourth round defeat to Colchester United.

Dannie Bulman scored a stunning opener for Crawley, but the visitors hit back to win 3-1.

The attendance of 5612 was the third biggest at The People's Pension Stadium behind Reading 2013 (5880) and Wolves 2014 (5680) and the memories of our wins over Norwich City and Stoke City will rightly live long in the memory of all Crawley fans.

Operations Director Kelly Derham said: "The staff - full-time and part-time - worked incredibly hard throughout the cup run and I would like to thank them for their efforts. It wasn't to be on Tuesday but our organisation off the field was praised by a lot of people from the TV broadcasters, police and safety authorities to our sponsors and guests.

"The pitch invasion at the end and throwing of smoke bombs was obviously very disappointing and we await to see if there will be a sanction imposed on the club, but 99.9% of our fans behaved impeccably and I have had quite a lot of emails today from supporters who are disappointed about the actions of a few individuals.

"But we have still got the FA Cup and a lot to play for in the League. We have players fit again and others close to fitness and Gaby, his staff and players will be putting their heart and soul into getting us back on track, starting at Cambridge United on Saturday."
