Carabao Cup: Crawley Town 1-0 Norwich City

Beryly Lubala scores for Crawley
Beryly Lubala has scored five goals in six games since joining Crawley from Birmingham in the summer

League Two Crawley knocked a weakened Norwich out of the Carabao Cup to reach the third round for only the second time in their history.

Former Birmingham midfielder Beryly Lubala scored the only goal - his fifth of the season - with a deflected effort that wrong-footed visiting goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann.

That was enough to oust a Norwich team showing 11 changes from their Premier League defeat by Chelsea on Saturday.

The Canaries did hit the crossbar through Emiliano Buendia but largely struggled to break down the hosts, who sit 63 places below them in the English football pyramid.

On a forgettable night for the visitors, head coach Daniel Farke was shown a late yellow card and defender Timm Klose was forced off after a clash of knees with Crawley forward Panutche Camara.

The draw for the third round takes place on Wednesday, after the remaining second-round ties have been played.

Crawley manager Gabriele Cioffi: "It's a great moment, a great emotion, and I'm very proud and happy that we have written this in the history of Crawley.

"I really enjoyed seeing the stadium rocking in this way. We are humble people and after tonight we will prepare for Cheltenham."

Norwich boss Daniel Farke: "It was unlucky because we were the better side. We gave five debuts and made 11 changes and this type of game can happen when you do things like this.

"We missed some unbelievable chances, we hit the crossbar two times and had a few penalty incidents that weren't given."
