Crawley Town 0-0 Notts County

Notts County extended their unbeaten run to seven games, but their goalless draw at Crawley did little to boost either team's slim play-off hopes.

The result left County seven points adrift of the top six in League One.

Crawley created more clear-cut chances, with Bartosz Bialkowski saving well from Jamie Proctor and twice denying Jake Taylor, while also smothering Matt Sparrow's close-range effort.

Nicky Adams also had a low shot saved after a surging run from Mike Jones.

The Red Devils have only won once in their last 11 home league games.

Crawley Town manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Sussex:

"Again we should have won the game. We did by far enough to do it.

Notts came to shut up shop - Barker

"It's another performance where we didn't get what we deserved.

"We will keep doing the right thing, by playing the right way. I think sometimes you have to say we did everything we can.

"The team can't keep expecting him (Jamie Proctor) to do everything. As an all-round player however, I think he is as good as anyone."
