Manager Mark Yates has praised the magnificent 323 fans who made the tip to Barnet on Saturday for Crawley’s 4-2 defeat during which they really made themselves heard.

He said: “I thought the supporters were magnificent and really got behind the boys and probably made the most noise since I’ve been here.

“Hopefully we can put something on for them next week because I’m disappointed we have come away (from Barnet) without anything.

“It will be nice to play in front of our own fans again (on Boxing Day) and we aren’t doing too bad at home.

“Every game in this division is winnable, whether you play Stevenage at home, Wycombe away, Portsmouth away. It’s just a matter of application.”

Yates is considering picking the same team for both games.

He said: “Saturday, Monday, Saturday is not an issue - it’s a quick turnaround, you’d prefer Saturday, Tuesday but it’s not an issue.”
