Forest Green Rovers Stage Thrilling Comeback to Extend Crawley Town’s Winless Streak…

In the match between Forest Green Rovers and Crawley Town, the Reds suffered their sixth consecutive winless streak in all competitions with a 2-1 loss to Forest Green Rovers, who were struggling before this match.

Despite an early lead provided by Ronan Darcy, Forest Green Rovers managed a come-from-behind victory, thanks to a first-half double by Callum Morton.

This defeat caused Scott Lindsey’s team to drop to 14th place in the league standings, while Rovers’ win lifted them out of the relegation zone.

Crawley Town’s lineup remained unchanged from their previous match against Walsall, with Liam Kelly captaining the side in the absence of Ben Gladwin.

Crawley took the lead just six minutes into the game when Darcy scored a powerful goal from inside the area.

The visitors missed a chance to double their lead soon after when Nick Tsaroulla was denied by the outstanding Forest Green Rovers’ goalkeeper, James Belshaw.

Forest Green had an opportunity to level the score on 15 minutes, but Troy Deeney’s header went wide from Callum Morton’s delivery.

Crawley created a well-executed set-piece opportunity, but Belshaw made another crucial save, denying Klaidi Lolos.

However, the momentum shifted in Rovers’ favor in the first half as Morton scored on 27 minutes, cutting in on his right foot to beat Corey Addai.

Rovers took the lead just before half-time due to a defensive mix-up in the Crawley team, allowing Morton to secure his second goal of the match.

In the second half, Crawley started brightly but was met with strong resistance from Belshaw, who made several crucial saves, including efforts from Darcy and Will Wright.

Both teams continued to exchange blows, with close chances on both sides. Forest Green had two opportunities to extend their lead in the late stages of the game, but Deeney’s header hit the roof of the net, and Mathew Stevens’ shot was saved by Addai.

The Crawley Town lineup included Addai, Wright, Johnson, Maguire, Gordon, Darcy, Williams, Kelly, Tsaroulla, Orsi, and Lolos, with substitutes Henry, Forster, and Roles available but unused on the bench.
