"I didn't think the Leeds players fancied it. It's amazing for the Crawley boys, it's a cup final. They were brilliant, they deserved to win today."

But there was one thing lacking for Torres. "It is such a shame the fans were not here. Everytime they scored I kept saying that. That night was amazing ten years ago, but this is also a very good day for Crawley Town."
