Crawley are in the thick of the League Two play-off race after another home win.

Second-half goals from Luke Gambin and Ollie Palmer secured a 2-0 successes over Cambridge, their fourth win in a row at the Broadfield Stadium.

Reds were awful in the first half and were indebted to three saves from Glenn Morris to keep them on level terms.

The home keeper also made a pair of fine stops from Ade Azeez and Luke O’Neil in the second period before his side won the match in the last 20 minutes.

The lively Gambin, a Maltese international on loan from Luton, cut inside on to his left foot to drive low past veteran goalkeeper David Forde at his near post on 71 minutes.

Palmer did something similar, right-footed this time, six minutes later to open up some breathing space.

The result leaves Reds in ninth place, one point off the play-off places.
