Crawley’s League 2 season continued with a draw against Portsmouth at the Broadfield Stadium on Tuesday.

Portsmouth were denied by Newcastle loanee ‘keeper Woodman, who continues to impress in his Crawley stay, with him saving from former Red Tubbs and others as Pompey were kept at bay in this nil-nil draw.

When the teenager was beaten by Tubbs the linesman had his flag raised for offside against the team Reds boss Yates feels ‘will win the title!’

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be, Crawley’s draw aside, Barnet and Hartlepool’s wins?

Barnet, gaining a first win back in the Football League having lost both the previous league games but beating Millwall in the League Cup, saw off the previously unbeaten Northampton. Not only had the Cobblers not lost they hadn’t conceded but that changed at the Hive with a two-nil Bees win!

Hartlepool last season struggled at the start of the campaign, and basically throughout, looking dead certs to go down with just a few months of the season to go! A turnaround for Pools has seen them win every league and cup game so far this term, including the one-nil win at Victoria Park against Terry Butchers struggling Newport.

Who was the Crawley Man of the Match in this game? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most in this draw?
