FA Cup: Crawley Town 2-6 Southend United highlights

League One Southend United scored four extra-time goals to finally move into the second round of the FA Cup at the expense of spirited League Two opponents Crawley Town.

The visitors cruised into a 2-0 first-half lead thanks to an own goal from Josh Doherty, who deflected in Simon Cox's strike, and Harry Bunn's close-range finish following a Cox header.

But Town target man Ollie Palmer thumped home his side's first and then he found space to draw the hosts level with a neat low finish from the edge of the penalty area.

Neither side could find a winner in normal time but Southend were rampant in the extra 30 minutes.

Another deflected Cox effort put them ahead before John White's volley settled nerves by making it 4-2.

In the second period, Sam Mantom's calm finish and a classy Stephen McLaughlin curled effort sealed an emphatic win and a second-round tie at home against Barnsley.
