Crawley Town assistant manager Jimmy Dack believed their fabulous 3-0 win at Newport County was well-deserved by boss Mark Yates.

Reds rose up two places out of the relegation zone to 21st as two goals by Gwion Edwards and a third by Matt Harrold.

I’ve never met a manager that works as hard as he does and he deserved those three points, because he takes all the brunt and takes the pressure off the players, and he’s a good guy.”

The Reds No.2 also praised the younger players for putting in a fine 90-minute performance to clinch only their second victory of the season.

Dack was given a warm welcome by the home fans having spent four years at the South Wales club as both assistant manager and caretaker manager.

He said: “It’s a massive win for us because obviously we’ve lost our last-four and it’s nice to get back on track.

“We have a young side, and you know they are going to make mistakes, sometimes costly mistakes. But what was really pleasing for us was some young players put in a 90-minute performance.

“We are working hard on the training ground to get better and the manager deserves a bit of credit.

“I’ve never met a manager that works as hard as he does and he deserved those three points, because he takes all the brunt and takes the pressure off the players, and he’s a good guy.”
