Stevenage 1-2 Crawley Town

Crawley scored twice in four second-half minutes to come from behind and beat Stevenage in League One.

Robin Shroot, who signed a two-year contract extension on Friday, put the home side ahead when he latched on to David Gray's centre.

Hope Akpan tucked home on the rebound to make it 1-1, while Dannie Bulman's long-range strike won it for Crawley.

It was the hosts' first game since the death of Mitchell Cole and both sides observed a minute's silence.

Cole, who helped Stevenage win the 2007 FA Trophy, passed away earlier this month.


Crawley Town manager Richie Barker told BBC Sussex:

"We deserved this win. It was no worse performance than we've had over the past two or three weeks.

"We had some luck with the second goal but I thought the attitude of the players was fantastic.

"The way we played, passed the ball and trusted each other - this team are a good bunch to work with."
