Crawley conquer Wimbledon

League Two side Crawley Town have upstaged AFC Wimbledon 3-2 in their Carling Cup qualifying clash on Friday.Crawley made headlines last season with a fairytale run in the FA Cup, which saw them travel to Old Trafford where they lost to Manchester United in the fifth round.

After earning promotion by winning the Conference National division, Crawley have begun their League Cup campaign in style by coming from behind twice to beat fellow promoted side Wimbledon.

The visitors at Broadfield Stadium took the lead on 26 minutes, when Luke Moore found the back of the net, before Hope Akdan ensured the sides went to the break at 1-1 with his 38th-minute effort.

Wimbledon off-season signing Jack Midson, acquired from Oxford United, put his new side back in front just a minute into the second half.

But goals to Sergio Torres (53rd minute) and Matt Tubbs (64th) ensured the home side will enter the League Cup’s first round proper, where they will take on Championship side Crystal Palace.
