Jubilant Crawley boss Steve Evans shrugged off a touchline bust-up with Nick Barmby after a 57th-minute strike from Matt Tubbs sent his npower League Two side into the FA Cup fifth round with a 1-0 victory at Hull.

Barmby was incensed over a second half incident which saw Evans' assistant Paul Raynor sent to the stands, with the Tigers boss accusing Crawley backroom staff of "trying to get my players sent off".

Evans retorted: "I think he's grabbing at straws and he shouldn't say these things. Nick Barmby is an altar boy, is he? I don't think so. He's lost the game because we've come here and outplayed his team."
