Richie Barker hailed another "fantastic win" for Crawley as a 1-0 victory over Preston ensured a top-half finish for his side.

The Reds boast victories against Sheffield United, Coventry and Preston in their debut season in League One, without conceding a goal, and Barker believes that speaks volumes for the progress they have made.

"It's fantastic that we've beaten clubs like that. The challenge for us now is to do it on a regular basis," he said after an early strike from Mike Jones clinched victory at Broadfield Stadium on Tuesday night.

"We've got an opportunity now to reach 70 points and finishing as high as seventh. We've won three of our last four games and want to make it four out of five in our final game at home to Hartlepool on Saturday."
