Match Report

Town prove promotion credentials Crawley eased to their third successive home league victory to see off Bristol Rovers 4-1 and move to the top of the League Two table. First-half goals from Tyrone Barnett and Ben Smith put Steve Evans' men firmly in charge, and striker Matt Tubbs added a third before Barnett hit his second goal six minutes from time. Barnett gave Crawley the lead after 14 minutes, forcing the ball home after John Dempster flicked on a long throw from David Hunt. Rovers were punished for slack defending when the unmarked Smith doubled the hosts' advantage after 28 minutes by heading in from six yards after a short corner by Sergio Torres was played in by Dean Howell. Rovers substitute Elliot Richards put a left-footed shot wide before Tubbs made it 3-0 as he blasted home a direct free-kick from 20 yards in the 74th minute. Rovers pulled back a consolation when former QPR defender Lee Brown caught keeper Michel Kuipers out with a deep cross which crept into the far corner. But Crawley were further rewarded for their attacking flair when former Macclesfield marksman Barnett latched onto a cross from Smith to fire the hosts' fourth goal. Rovers rarely threatened in the first half although much-travelled striker Matt Harrold saw his downward header cleared off the line by Howell following a corner to the far post by Matt Gill.
