Crawley 1 Yeltz 1

09 January 1999

The Yeltz earned a hard-fought point on Saturday with an excellent 1-1 draw at high-flying Crawley .

They're probably the only team who can get remotely close to Nuneaton if they win their games in hand, so it was never going to be easy. They had most of the play , but the defence - and Danny in particular - were well solid. We even took the lead through a Ralphy Crisp header just after half-time, but they equalised just after and piled on the pressure. However we held firm and came away with a welcome point .

Every other game was decisive and it's probably even closer now, with only 9 points covering 3rd to 18th in the table. We've slipped a couple of places to 13th .
