Crawley strike duo can improve, says Tyrone Barnett

Crawley Town striker Tyrone Barnett says his partnership with Matt Tubbs can only get better.

Barnett, 25, has scored in both of Crawley's games in League Two while Tubbs opened his account in the Carling Cup win over AFC Wimbledon last week.

Barnett told BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey: "We read each other's game well. We've played a lot of time together and we're still learning.

"I think there is more to come from us, but there is a lot of competition."

The Reds were among the pre-season favourites for promotion from League Two, but Barnett believes they will have to be patient in many of their games.

"It is a tough league because anyone can beat anyone," he added.

"I think a lot of sides will sit back and try and hit us on the break. We'll have to work hard and play our game.

"But we've got the squad and ambition to be there or thereabouts for promotion."
