Yeovil Town 1-2 Crawley Town

Crawley came from behind to beat nine-man Yeovil in a game which was halted when a drone flew over the Huish Park pitch.

The hosts took the lead in the 19th minute when a cross-shot from Olufela Olomola came back off the bar and Sam Surridge followed up to fire the ball past Glenn Morris.

Yeovil then received the first of their red cards when Connor Smith was shown a second yellow and on 44 minutes the scores were level when Mark Randall sent a looping volley into the far corner.

The drama was not over yet as in the third minute of first-half stoppage time, Omar Sowunmi was given a straight red for bringing down Jordan Roberts just outside the box.

Despite their numerical advantage, Crawley struggled to break the Glovers down, before the game took a bizarre turn as play was temporarily suspended on 80 minutes when a drone flew over the pitch.

When the match resumed 10 minutes later, the visitors did eventually make the breakthrough in the 87th minute when substitute Thomas Verheydt headed in a Jimmy Smith cross.
