GOAL FLASH! Crawley Town 1-2 Colchester United

(53′ mins): Norris fired into Luyambula’s midriff, while Bramall was a whisker away following a neat exchange with Nouble as the U’s looked to turn the tie on its head after the interval. 

And eight minutes after the restart, Colchester – with a little fortune – took the lead. Bramall’s dead-ball effort cannoned back off the bar but rebounded into the net via Crawley keeper, Luyambula, who was still reacting to the initial strike.
