Crawley Town and Oldham shared the points after both sides finished the game with 10 men in a bruising encounter at Broadfield Stadium.

The Latics' Jean Yves M'Voto saw red in the first half after he shoved Kyle McFadzean and pushed Gary Alexander, and the numbers were levelled when Hope Akpan clattered Robbie Simpson.

Lee Croft went on to tee up Jose Baxter for Oldham's opener.

But McFadzean secured a point after driving in from 25 yards.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Crawley manager Richie Barker told BBC Sussex:

"After the first sending off, we got sloppy. In the end I suppose it is a good point.

"We should have won the game comfortably. Both goalies played a big part, but today we looked a bit tired. It has been a difficult run of games.

"It's good that we have a bit of a break now. We just looked a bit flat in the conditions."
