Crawley Town head coach Harry Kewell was happy with his side's display in their first home game since he took charge.

He reckoned Saturday's 1-1 draw against Chelsea XI was a good start to his reign, following on from their 6-1 win and 2-0 and 9-0 wins at East Grinstead and Oakwood.

The former Liverpool star was delighted they showed the character to recover from going a goal down from Charlie Brown's goal with just 15 minutes to go through Joe McNerney's 88th minute headed equaliser.

Kewell said: "I think moments in the game I was extremely pleased and there were moments where you're not.

"But that's going to happen throughout the season. You don't expect in football to dominate for 90 minutes.

"It's a good start to the season. My boys have been put through the mill this week and for the last three weeks.

"So it's a credit to them that they are shaping up to it and they accepted the challenge and came back from a goal down."
