Yeovil saw their seven-game winning home run brought to an end after Crawley staged a dramatic second-half fightback to earn a draw.

Byron Webster headed in Ben Gordon's cross and Paddy Madden converted Luke Ayling's delivery to put the Glovers in early control.

Seconds after the break Joe Walsh nodded home a Mat Sadler free kick.

Matt Sparrow completed the comeback with a confident strike, before both sides hit the woodwork twice late on.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"We were poorer in the second half than Crawley were in the first. It feels like a defeat.

"We never got going in the second half and we didn't give ourselves a chance.

"There were too many people out of sorts.

"We've had to remind them that it's been going well but recently we haven't been doing enough to win the game."
