Very quiet at the Park and Ride today. Hope that’s not a bad sign.

I’m concerned. I’m not sure we know what to do with an early 2 goal lead.

Crawley do look very dangerous on the counter.

When was the last time we conceded 11 corners in a half without conceding?

A sign of a more galvanised defence maybe...

It's a game of two halves as they say. More of the same please.

Really patchy Internet here, commentary finally settled down and first time I've been able to get on here. Sounding excellent despite Crawley's 500 corners, hope we don't rue a few of these missed good chances second half.

What a mad day in League 2. Exactly why I've never placed a single bet on a footy match. COYR!

Fantastic result but all 5 bottom teams win who would have predicted that?

Another great and unexpected result. Sounds like FGR could have scored 5 or 6, and a comfortable second half. Good stuff.

Clean sheet! Climbing again! Despite missing those couple of chances to make it comfy in the end sounded like a professional league outing and might play big part in being able to do same next season. Excellent lads.

I must admit that I wasn't expecting a win today, so to beat Crawley and keep a clean sheet was fantastic. Well done all the Players and Management and a special mention to the supporters, they sounded great.

Final completed team sheet for those who print out a copy: http://www.forestgreenroversfc.co.uk/id31.html

Attendance: 2346 (243 from Crawley)

Man-of-the-Match: Isaiah Osbourne

A result that makes my evening much happier.

Me too heather, couldn't make today, off out soon but with a grin. getting the point at morecambe last Saturday doesn't look so bad after their result today.

Great result and time to push on. The next 3 in front of us are ready to be reeled in.

Roll on next Saturday and another 6 pointer.

Great result and could have been more with the woodwork saving them at least twice and Grubb waiting a second too long when through on goal.Defence were solid and a couple of good saves from Brad.The Forest Green Fortress continues.
