Crawley has 'long way to go', says Kewell

Harry Kewell has lifted League Two side Crawley Town from a relegation battle to potential promotion this season but the Socceroos great has revealed his side still has a "long way to go".

Crawley Town clinched their eighth win in 10 games on Sunday (AEDT) with a 3-1 victory over Lincoln City to move up to ninth on the ladder, two points out of the play-off places. 

However, Kewell insisted he is not going to settle for a top ten finish and called on his players to push on and finish the season in even better form.

"A table is a table, I only look at the number one," Kewell said.

"That’s my mentality, it’s always number one and we are fighting to eventually get to that top spot which is tough but we just need to continue playing the way we want to.”

"We’re in a comfortable position of where I want to be and hopefully we keep going."

Kewell praised his players work ethic and believes the team has the potential to take their game to another level during the back end of the season.

"We’re breaking records all over the place which is fantastic but you’ve got to give credit to the players playing and the ones training as they are pushing the other players," he said.



“It’s a team effort and we’re all working to the same goal. We all want to improve and there is no better way than doing it out there when people are watching. 

“You’ve got to enjoy moments like this, so we’ll enjoy today’s win and then we’ll concentrate on Forest Green on Monday.

“I’m happy but there’s still a long way to go.”
