Forest Green Rovers vs Crawley Town: Five Things We Learnt

Crawley Town rescued an unlikely point against Forest Green Rovers to prevent Mark Cooper’s side from gaining their second win in just four games.

The 1-1 draw leaves Rovers in 21st position in League Two with Crawley now advancing to 18th place in the division.

The green and black army face Exeter City in the second round of the FA Cup in just over a week’s time.

Here are five things we learnt from Saturday’s game.

Deadly Doidge

  • Having already scored seven league goals this season, Christian Doidge continued to show his worth for his side following a fine first half goal.

The striker also put in another good performance, with his goal almost securing a win for the green and black army.

Impressive Rovers

  • After another impressive display, The Rovers continued to show signs of improvement.

With their two upcoming games against both Crewe and Chesterfield respectively, The Green Devils need to capitalise on their favourable run of fixtures.

Devastating Dutchman

  • Former MVV Mastricht striker Thomas Verheydt opened his account for the season following a fine second half finish.

The Dutch forward will now be hoping to add to his tally in the hope of spearheading his side into the top half of the table.

Timid Town

  • Crawley Town have now drawn three out of their last three League games.

Their late goal against Forest Green was the only one to show since their 3-1 away defeat to Portsmouth over a month ago.

Man Of The Moment

  • Keanu Marsh Brown again looked a constant threat for the home side, with two fine strikes in the first half.

The winger will need to be on the top of his game, if The Rovers are to remain in the Football League.
