Crawley Town head coach Gabriele Cioffi praised his young trio who gained rare starts during Tuesday night’s Checkatrade Trophy game against Portsmouth.
Former Watford defender David Sesay, 20, ex-Aldershot Town striker Brian Galach, 18, made their first starts for the club while former Colchester United midfielder Tarryn Allarakhia, 20, started a cup game for the third time in a Reds shirt.
Cioffi said: “The three of them played very well. In my opinion it was a high level performance.
“I thought we led the game in the first half and even in the second half we played very well.
“I have no doubts about David - these lads are amazing and really happy and am really proud of the performance.”
