GOAL FLASH! Crawley Town 1-0 Colchester United

(20′ mins): It was Crawley who started the brighter. Dannie Bulman forced Dean Gerken into a smart save low to his right, while the U’s backline needed to display resolve as Mason Bloomfield and Reece Grego-Cox asked questions with their considerable power and pace.

Bulman was leading by example, and it was the Crawley skipper who opened the scoring in spectacular fashion, sending a thundering right-footed strike high beyond Gerken from fully 25-yards.
