Sounds like we should have just scored.Good start.

Not bad. Just need a goal but it feels like we are deserving of one.

0-0 at half time then. Sounds like we're doing well with some good chances for FGR hitting the bar and post. Bob Hunt was incensed that Crawley's keeper wasn't given a red card for hand ball outside of the box - as was Mark Cooper by the sounds of it.

Hoping for more of the same in the second - with some FGR goals of course!

Sounds like it is nearly all Crawley in the second half, hopefully we can turn the tide!

James comes on and doesn't take a good chance to score.

It's getting nervy - as usual!

That’s a decent point away from home. When you go 1-0 up you are always disappointed not to hold on but it seems like we played pretty well. I look forward to MCs View (disappointed I expect) and supporters’ reports.

Still tight at the bottom with a couple of clubs down there picking up points like us

Another point picked up, so very useful. Will be interesting to here reports, Bob lamenting our missed chances?

1-1 at full time, with good chances for both sides at the end. Good entertainment by the sounds of it.

Still 21st in the table, I see,

With Chesterfield drawing at Swindon and Morecambe beating Wycombe others are picking up points too so we're nowhere near safe. We need to keep working very hard. Still, really enjoying the ride in League 2 at the moment.

Happy in the end with an away point and that makes 4 league games without a defeat. Wish Bob Hunt would keep taking the tranquillisers, he doesn't do my heart any good.

Final completed team sheet if you print out a copy: http://www.forestgreenroversfc.co.uk/id31.html

Attendance: 2149 (202 from Forest Green) Well done travelling supporters.

Man-of-the-Match: Reece Brown

Still no H/T Bovril taken.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
