Bury 0-2 Crawley Town

Crawley progressed into the second round of the FA Cup with a comfortable win at Bury.

Both keepers saw action early on, with Crawley's Scott Shearer saving well from Peter Sweeney and Matt Tubbs testing Cameron Belford's reactions.

Tyrone Barnett headed the Red Devils ahead from Andy Drury's corner.

Michael Doughty lashed home Josh Simpson's cut-back to make the result safe before Mark Hughes was shown a straight red for the Shakers late on.


Bury manager Richie Barker told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We only played well enough to win the game for 20 minutes out of the 90.

"The big thing was we didn't work hard enough and didn't match their robust style, where they closed us down very quickly.

"It was quite clear their game plan was to stop us playing and get what they could out of the game and they did it very well, and we didn't cope with it."

Crawley manager Steve Evans told BBC Sussex:

"I think I've got the best board of directors in the country to work for. They told me to use this game as a measurement, and don't be suicidal if it doesn't go our way.

"This is a big step up for us. This Bury side is better than the Swindon side we beat last year, the Derby side we played last year."
