The Reds boss was delighted after the 2-1 win against AFC Wimbledon, thanks to goals from Ashley Nadesan and Max Watters.

And now he hopes the Crawley fans get a good tie they can attend in the next round. But he wouldn't say who he wants.

Yems said: "I know what I would like but I am not going to tempt fate. It would be nice to be at home.

"But it's a funny one because you ain't got the crowds there. When we were at Bournemouth and going to games with full houses it is a good experience but lets hope the crowds are back and the Crawley fans are there. Let's see who they want and get a draw for them.

"But today doesn't mean anything unless we get something on Tuesday."

And on the game he said: ""It was a fantastic performance. I would have loved to have seen the fans here. We lost the last two, hopefully that was a just a little blip. We showed today, with the lads putting in a shift, there's still life left.

"We never give in. Last two games we have been very sloppy and we deserved what we got out of those two games. But they are gone, we have moved on and now we are in the hat for Monday.

"Nic [Tsaroulla] came in today for his debut, David Sesay came in, as id Tom Dallison and they did brillaint. It shows the spirit we have go for helping one another."

And when asked were the players happy and celebrating, Yems said: "They are all tired and asleep getting ready for Tuesday. Of course they are happy, if they can be happy about that what are you in football for?"
