Plymouth beat Crawley to take top spot in League Two

On-loan Crystal Palace midfielder Hiram Boateng swooped to smash in an 89th-minute Plymouth winner as they beat Crawley 2-1 to go top of League Two.

Boateng swept home as Crawley goalkeeper Freddie Woodman failed to hold on to Graham Carey's thundering 25-yard free-kick.

Second-half substitute Roarie Deacon had grabbed an 86th-minute leveller for Crawley as he bundled the ball in from close range following a goalmouth scramble after the ball came back off the post from JoshYorwerth's header.

Striker Reuben Reid rewarded Plymouth's first-half dominance with a 43rd-minute opener, sliding the ball Woodman following a superb defence-splitting pass from Argyle playmaker Graham Carey.

Carey was at the heart of everything good about Plymouth's play.

Woodman did well to keep out recalled Carl McHugh's glanced header from a Carey corner just before the opening goal.

Before that seven-goal top scorer Jake Jervis had twice gone close.

In the 62nd minute Kelvin Mellor fired over after Woodman had been beaten by the pace of Carey's cross from the left.
