Crawley’s League 2 season continued with, and for the first time at home back in League 2 on home turf, with a defeat against AFC Wimbledon at Broadfield on Saturday.

A lead was lost as Crawley, which was also for a first time this season in the league when most tip the Reds to struggle, were beaten two-one by a Wimbledon side that doesn’t travel very well!

Crawley went into the half time break one-up when Edwards (34) headed in a Rooney cross but early in the second half Akinfenwa (51) headed in a Barcham cross to make it one-one. Barcham (76), already denied by Newcastle loanee ‘keeper Woodman, followed up to head home after Francomb had seen his effort blocked to win it for the Dons.

Plymouth 1-2 Portsmth
Yeovil 0-1 Bristol R
York City 1-2 Hartlepool

Looking at these results the stand out one has to be the Northampton win against Exeter and the incredible draw between Carlisle and Cambridge!

This three-nil Northampton win against previously unbeaten Exeter, which followed up a three-nil League Cup win over Blackpool in midweek, made it three wins out of three with seven-goals scored and none conceded so far by Chris Wilder’s side.

An up and down game at Brunton Park saw Carlisle come from behind and Ibehre grab himself a hat-trick, the first in League 2 this season to continue his early season form, but that still wasn’t enough to give the Blues all three-points in a four-four draw with free scoring Cambridge.

Crawley are back in action this midweek with another tough League 2 game against in form Portsmouth, also at Broadfield, on Tuesday.
