Former Albion youngster Jordan Maguire-Drew came off the bench to score the winner for Crawley as they beat League Two leaders Cheltenham 1-0 at The People's Pension Stadium.

The winger had only been on the pitch ten minutes when he scored the only goal of the game after his effort went in off the post.

Head Coach John Yems made just one change from the side which beat Bradford 2-0 on Tuesday, with Jake Hessenthaler coming in for Josh Wright, who dropped to the bench.

Crawley only named six substitutes due to their extensive injury list, but they were boosted by defenders Tony Craig and David Sesay returning to the squad and being named on the bench.

The hosts went close to taking the lead in the 34th minute after Jack Powell played a through ball to striker Ashley Nadesan.

He then brought the ball down well, before stepping past Cheltenham keeper, Joshua Griffiths, but could only put his effort over.

In first half stoppage time striker Tom Nichols almost put the ball into his own net, as his clearance hit the bar, before the ball was then cleared to safety.

Nichols then had a chance at the right end after Sean Long’s backpass was headed towards him.

He controlled the ball well before firing his effort straight at Griffiths.

With 15 minutes to go Liam Sercombe’s chipped effort came back off the crossbar.

Three minutes later Crawley took the lead after Nichols picked out Maguire-Drew with a pass and his effort hit the post and went in.

The win leaves the Reds 10th in the table and three points off the play-off places, although they have played two more matches than Forest Green in seventh.
