Good win.  Still a very long way to go with 15 points still to play for.  Could go right down to the final day.


Behave, promotion will be wrapped up with one or two games to spare.

Crawley view on the game

Crawley beaten by winner in fourth minute of stoppage time

Promotion-chasing Plymouth snatched a winner in the fourth minute of stoppage time against heartbroken Reds.

For the second successive game Crawley finished with ten men after top scorer James Collins was sent off in the 79th minute for a foul on Yann Songo’o.

Contact was minimal but referee Ben Toner reached for his pocket, having booked Collins earlier in the second half.

Reds looked to have negotiated the closing stages successfully with Glenn Morris untested - as he had been for much of the afternoon.

But when Lewis Young horribly sliced a clearance back to Antoni Sarcevic on the edge of his own box the midfielder played in Ryan Taylor who held off Joe McNerney and fired low and hard past Morris.

Not surprisingly, it sent the 1,540 Plymouth contingent into raptures but Argyle claims that justice had been served with their late winner were a wild exaggeration of events.

For an hour, the hosts had been the better side in a game of few clear-cut chances with Reds having to robust a physical visiting team, whose only spark of creativity was provided by No.10 Graham Carey.

Enzio Boldewijn looked up for the battle early on and was involved in three good moves, the third of which earned Crawley a 29th minute lead that they deserved for a purposeful start.

His pass played in the overlapping Young whose low cross found Dean Cox and he side-footed past Luke McCormick before rightly taking the plaudits from the fans for his first Crawley goal.

Reds were deservedly in front. Morris hadn’t made a save for the first hour with James Collins going close at the start of the second half before McCormick held Andre Blackman’s long-range effort at the second attempt.

But the game changed in the 63rd minute when Mark Connolly brought down Sarcevic a yard inside the box. Referee Toner was ideally placed to award a penalty and although Morris dived the right way Carey’s spot-kick had too much power.

Dermot Drummy made three substitutions in the closing stages and the game seemed to be petering out into a draw which would have been the least Crawley deserved for a hardworking performance.

Instead Plymouth got the break which all teams vying for promotion seem to get and can now look forward to League One football. For Reds, there is still work to do to secure their League 2 place for next season.

Crawley Town: Morris; Young, Connolly, McNerney, Blackman; Boldewijn, Smith, Djalo (Payne 83), Cox (Murphy 85), Clifford (Harrold 80), Collins. Unused subs: Mersin, Garnett, Bawling, Lelan.

Yellow cards: McNerney, Collins. Red card: Collins.

Man of the match: Dean Cox

Attendance: 3432 (1540 Plymouth)

It was not that long ago that Crawley Town were the bees knees of the emerging newcomers entering the Football League. What happened there then ?.

I don't have access to a tv very often, but I do this evening. Took me half an hour to work it.  As Argyle and Adams rubber stamped the inevitable,  couldn't help laughing at the tv coverage of the grand national when the owners of the horses ( not sure if they're the owners of the jockeys as well these days ) were asked to step up and receive due adulation from the adoring cameras. Not quite sure what they add to the competitive field of physical activity, but there you go. Think they got given a bottle of booze and a rather large cup. How apt.

Victor ludorum LOL. Not much changed for some folk, since the old gods died. Bless.

at least she (the owner) was wearing knee high boots sunny

Just back too.

What can you say? We started brightly, as brightly as the sunshine in which the game was played, and actually took the game to Crawley! We didn't manage anything as daft as a shot at goal but we dominated both possession and territory. Lots of huff n puff from both sides and some very indecisive refereeing didn't really add to the spectacle but for 20 minutes or so we looked comfortable in the extreme.

And then out of the blue, after a pretty decent  passage of passing play of the type that had hitherto seemed beyond them, Crawley scored. From there they grew in confidence but overall it was desperate fare and huff n puff was firmly in control of both sides.

So 1 down at half time and we hadn't really threatened their goal at all and they had threatened ours only the once.

And so it continued with huff n puff still dominant until Sarcevic picked up a ball in their box after some sloppy play by Crawley only to be immediately chopped down for the most blatant penalty you could ever wish to see. Carey confidently slammed it home.

And then we did a job, I think, on their striker.  First Bradley went down claiming he was elbowed. Maybe he was. Yellow card. A few minutes later Songo'o, playing centre half today, also went down also claiming an elbow, maybe it was, and off matey boy went for an early bath with about 10 minutes to go. In truth the ref just didn't seem to have a clue when it came to the striker/CB battles. Mostly he gave nothing at all, sometimes he gave the decision clearly the wrong way but each time it seemed more like guesswork than decision making.

And then we scored deep into time added on. Taylor got behind/turned his man, was wide open in front of goal, couldn't miss and did not.

Cue crazy scenes, wild celebrations, unconfined joy and the desperately needed, totally crucial and probably totally undeserved 3 points.

In the entire game we only managed 2 shots on goal and one of them was a penalty.

It was an awful game, Crawley were poor (so poor they had Andre Blackman playing for them) and we weren't much better but the 3 points were everything and in the vernacular of today's youth only one word describes the end of the match: scenes.

It's still not certain but we're up now. Today's win was the equivalent of the one at Lincoln in Luggy's promotion season: the numbers don't add up yet but everybody knows we're there.

Class of 2017 must be the dullest and least inspiring Pilgrims ever to get themselves promoted.

Looking forward to being at the Crewe Aviva jizzfest, I reckon Lord Jim will get a standing ovation.

Good job the D&C don't look after Sheffield United then.
1500 arrests for a pitch invasion celebrating promotion.
I wonder what chap the club will come up with in the run up to the Newport game.
Mind you, I did suggest to someone yesterday that if we manage to get promoted against Pompey, I might just run out of the Tribute Lounge and stage my own Home Park Pitch invasion to celebrate promotion! lol!

There, bar the shouting.

SFD's report pretty much nails it. I'd add that I thought the officials had little control over what was going on from the start. At times, it looked like rugby and Taylor was being constantly fouled by the centre backs. There were some pretty bad tackles in midfield too. Set the tone for the whole game, which was very poor, with Argyle unable to rise above it and play decent football.

Nevertheless, great and enjoyable celebrations at the end.

Very odd feeling about this promotion. Have only been to a handful of games, which doesn't help, but we just seem to play such a negative brand of football. Taken alongside the disappointment of last season and how long we've been in the basement, it all adds up to 'meh'.

Good, of course, that we'll go up but will only really cheer up about PAFC if and when we start showing intent to get back to the Championship.
