  • Karlan Ahearne-Grant (90'+3')
  • Callum Lang (90'+1')

Both goals scored in stoppage time as Crawley and Morecambe draw

Callum Lang's stoppage-time opener was not enough for all three points as Karlan Ahearne-Grant hit back to earn Crawley a 1-1 draw with Morecambe.
Nineteen-year-old substitute Lang scored in the first minute of added time to give the struggling visitors the lead.
But midfielder Ahearne-Grant replied two minutes later from point blank range after Joe McNerney helped on a cross by Enzio Boldewijn.
Crawley goalkeeper Glenn Morris was called into action early on when he turned a stinging left-footed drive from winger Gregg Wylde round the post.
Morecambe had a let off shortly after as the on-loan Ahearne-Grant put a shot across the face of the goal from a short pass by Mark Randall.
The hosts threatened when a cross by Lewis Young was cleared off the line by Sam Lavelle before Boldewijn drove over from a good position for the hosts.
Skipper Jimmy Smith got a shot on target for Crawley moments after the break, with keeper Barry Roche punching the ball out and Boldewijn heading the rebound wide.
A back heel by Smith later set up Young, but his goal-bound shot was blocked by Dean Winnard.
And before the late drama, Smith put a good chance over for Crawley while Morecambe's Andrew Fleming was denied when he fired against the crossbar four minutes from time.
