Crawley Town interim manager Dean Saunders reckoned his side deserved to beat Bradford based on the chances they created during their 1-0 defeat on Tuesday night.
He admitted an misjudged cross by Mark Yeates which was allowed through by goalkeeper Lewis Price handed the Bantams the three points claimed through an early headed goal by Francoise Zoko.

Saunders said: “We probably should have won, or at least got a draw out it - we had enough chances.
“The goal was a goalkeeping error that has really cost us the game.

Despite Bradford having more of the ball, the Reds nearly equalised from a Lee Fowler free-kick which was well-saved by home keeper Jordan Pickford.
