Crawley interim manager Martin Hinshelwood told BBC Sussex:
"To be fair to Crewe they competed, they worked hard, they made so many blocks and the one from Mat Sadler was unbelievable, but we are very disappointed.
"We are on a bit of a run at the moment and we have just got to believe in ourselves to get out of it. When [Crewe] went down to 10 men, we didn't pass the ball enough and we didn't keep it well enough.
"We had 90 minutes to win a game and we didn't. We have just got to do the things we believe in and I am sure it will fall for us."
