Last week all the talk was about Josh Payne’s wonder-strike at Wycombe.

This week all the praise has to be for Crawley goalkeeper Glenn Morris and his wonder-save, and what a save!

The Reds stopper who has been nothing short of sensational for us and is fast becoming the signing of the season, produced a fabulous double save during the first half against league leaders Doncaster Rovers to earn the Reds a deserved point.

Firstly Morris dived to his left to save a Rovers penalty and then quickly readjusted himself to save the rebound too.

If you’ve not seen it Reds fan ‘Adam Baker’ from Burgess Hill posted a brilliant video of the save on to the CRAWLEY TOWN 4 LIFE facebook group.

It’s well worth a view!

The match itself was very entertaining as 0-0’s go, with chances for both teams.

Crawley certainly going the closest to breaking the deadlock with two great chances just after the break. It was a great performance and one for which the home faithful had been waiting for a while.

With Portsmouth coming to town on Tuesday of this week, we get to pit our wits against another one of the League Two heavyweights.

Over 5,000 tickets have already been sold for this game so a decent atmosphere and a full house can be expected.

Hopefully the boys will be inspired by a full Checkatrade stadium and we can look forward to another decent Reds display.

This coming Saturday we travel to Barnet or Canons Park to be exact for our last London away day of the season.

This is quite an easy one to get to for Reds fans, with direct train services from Three Bridges to West Hampstead Thameslink. Then a short hop on the Jubilee line from there to Canons Park and hey presto!

This fixture produced six goals last season all be it four went to Barnet with big Jon Akinde doing the usual and scoring against us again!

But it was a fun day out, Barnet’s new stadium is very impressive and very welcoming for away fans. If you haven’t watched Reds away this season and have been thinking of doing so then I recommend this fixture to you.

Quite a few of us will be catching the 11:05 from Three Bridges station on Saturday morning, we will then be drinking in “the railway” pub next to West Hampstead underground station from 12pm onwards. Come and joins us for a Red Army away day adventure and help cheer the Reds on to a third away win in a row!
