John Gregory says his side forced Stevenage to ‘camp in their own penalty box’ for the last 40 minutes of the match

John Gregory said it would have been a ‘travesty’ had his side not got anything from the match with Stevenage last night (Tuesday).

Crawley scored a 92nd minute equaliser after earlier spurning a number of second-half chances, including a Matt Tubbs penalty that Boro goalkeeper Chris Day saved with 15 minutes to go.

Speaking after the match, and about the number of chances his side had in the second half, Gregory said: “It would have been a travesty, but it really didn’t feel as if it wasn’t going to be our night.

“We put on Jamie Proctor who is an amazing athlete and we stuck the ball behind the Stevenage back four time and again and got Jamie to use his strength to push Stevenage back towards their own goal and they really just had to camp in their own penalty box for the last 40-odd minutes of the second half.
