Wednesday night’s friendly against Woking at Kingfield ended in victory for Crawley thanks to goals from Izale McLeod and Emmett O’Connor.

Crawley went into a two nil lead during the game as McLeod converted from the penalty spot in the 34 minute, before Connor grabbed his first goal since joining the club 20 minutes from time.

Woking did grab themselves a consolation for their efforts near the end, but manager John Gregory would’ve been pleased with another good run out and been pleased to field such a strong side with players slowly coming back to fitness.

Only Matt Harrold and Bradley Isaacs were missing from the squad.

Att: 437 (44 Crawley fans).

Speaking to the Crawley News following the game, Gregory was pretty pleased with what he saw from us, but called on McLeod especially to be far more clinical and ruthless as he believes his stroke against Woking was unnecessarily elaborate.

Speaking about the game and the 29 year old new signing, he said.

‘Izale worked very hard and stayed on for the whole 90 minutes but he needs to be a bit more ruthless in front of goal. He had a very good chance early on and there was a good bit of interaction between him and Gavin Tomlin. Really he has to bury them. If it’s a league game you get one chance.’
