Adams bags stoppage-time winner for Reds
Nicky Adams struck deep into stoppage time to earn Crawley a 3-2 win at home to bottom-of-the-table Bury.
The former Shakers midfielder grabbed his second of the game with a cross-cum-shot which dropped inside the far post.
Adams had put Reds ahead just before half-time and they seemed to be cruising when Hope Akpan doubled the advantage early in the second half.
But Bury responded with two goals inside four minutes midway through the second half and looked to be holding on for a draw until Adams struck in the 94th minute.
The Reds finally broke the deadlock two minutes before the interval. Akpan began the move with a strong run from midfield and Adams was in the right place to fire home a Mike Jones centre from the right.
Eight minutes into the second half they doubled their lead against a Bury side who had failed to register a single effort on goal in the first half. Adams was again at the heart of it with a strong run and lay-off for Akpan to fire low inside the near post.
Bury, who improved in the second half, halved the arrears on 66 minutes through a close-range header by Tom Hopper.
Three minutes later they were level when Andy Bishop rose superbly at the back post to head home a peach of a cross by Craig Jones.
Both sides had chances to win it, Paul Jones twice foiling Hopper after a mistake by McFadzean who then rattled the crossbar at the other end.
But Adams had the last word with his fifth goal in his last four starts.
