Charlie Wassmer handed the visitors the lead but Billy Bingham levelled for the Daggers, leaving Crawley in third place with two games remaining of the npower League Two season.

"I don't think we did enough in the second half to win the game, despite having two good chances," said Brewster.

"You've got to give credit to Dagenham, they made it difficult for us and had good energy. They're eight without defeat, they're hungry and make it difficult for teams. They put great balls into the box with set-pieces, but I thought we defended those very well.

"We countered well in the first half, but when they score a 30-yard strike in the 45th minute of the first half you have to take your hat off to the boy.

"We didn't do anything positive enough in the second half to win, but if you look at the scores around us that could prove to be a big point. We're still in the mix with two games to go and we look forward to next Saturday. We've got to do it for ourselves."

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
