Crawley left-back Mat Sadler has described conceding two goals in the 90th minute at Walsall as "a shocker."
The game ended 2-2, a fourth consecutive draw for The Reds who have drifted out of play-off contention.
"It was so comfortable for 89 minutes. We're not far off being a very good team, but these little moments are costing us," he told BBC Sussex.
"It's a shocker. Win and suddenly you're chasing the play-offs - four draws on the trot is no good to us."
Crawley now sit 13th in the League One table, 10 points behind sixth-placed Yeovil, but with two games in hand on the majority of the sides above them.
After a strong start to the season, Town have not been inside the top six since late November.
"Being positive, we're consistently playing very well; that said we're not winning enough matches," continued Sadler, a summer signing from Walsall.
"Maybe we'll be a wounded animal going into the Crewe game [next Saturday] and if we can get to 56 points who knows where that can take us."
