Dunn Disappointed After Crawley Defeat

12 December 2020

David Dunn was critical of his side’s performance as they were beaten 4-2 by Crawley Town at The People’s Pension Stadium on Saturday.

The Bluebirds recovered from conceding the first goal to lead five minutes in to the second half but the concession of a penalty followed by a red card for Connor Brown changed the complexion of the game.

Town’s in-form forward Max Watters claimed a hat-trick for the hosts as he continued his hot streak this season and that left Dunn to ponder a fourth successive League Two defeat.

“We gave away really poor goals and made poor decisions with and without the ball," Dunn told iFollow afterwards.

“We had opportunities but we have to make things happen at times so I am disappointed – probably the most disappointed I’ve been since I have been here, to be honest.

“I didn’t think we played well at all today so to get 2-1 up was pleasing, to get back in the game and nudge ourselves in front but it was a poor second goal and then we give the penalty away.

“It was better at the start of the second half, I was expecting that reaction, but again I am stood here disappointed because I really felt we could get that win today.

“I have had a look at the red card and Connor is a committed player but he probably doesn’t give the referee a choice. Does he win the ball? Yes, but when you go in two-footed you give the referee a decision to make.

“We have to go again now, as ever, so we will get back to work on Monday and be ready for Tuesday.”
