John Coleman wants to see a reaction from his Stanley side after their 3-1 defeat against Crawley at the Broadfield Stadium.

The Reds took an early lead through Jack Nolan but the hosts hit back through Will Wright and a Danilo Orsi brace. 

Stanley finished the game with 10 men atfer Brad Hills was given his marching orders for a foul in the box that led to Orsi's second goal.

"We have no one to blame but ourselves," said Coleman. “We had control after a great early goal, but then somehow found a way to lose.

“They equalise, fair enough, but our keeper Jon (McCracken) for the second knows he should save it. From there it all went downhill.

”We’ve got to be more savvy and more in- game mode because this was just such a waste – we played as if it didn’t matter.”

The Reds boss added: "It’s not good play at all and it’s disappointing that it has come to this. Now we’ve got to put this right, players can’t be allowed to get away with it.

“You can coach tactics and movement but not desire and grit, and that’s where we were short.”

The result leaves Coleman's side eighth in the League Two table - one point off the play-off places.
