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:

Long-awaited win pleases Barker

"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."
