Matt Godden scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner as Stevenage came from behind to beat Crawley Town.

Boro had trailed to a James Collins opener from the penalty spot in the first half after a Luke Wilkinson foul in the box.

But Godden pulled Stevenage back level with 15 minutes of the match remaining when he tapped in at the far post following Glenn Morris’ save from Josh McQuoid.

And then five minutes into added time at the end of the match a Charlie Lee long throw was nodded on to McQuoid whose knock down for Godden was rifled in off the far post despite Morris’ best efforts to keep it out.

Crawley Town: Morris, Connolly, McNerney, Yorwerth, Lelan, Smith, Cox, Payne (B Clifford 99), Roberts (Bawling 92), Boldewijn (Murphy 78), Collins. Subs: Mersin, Blackman, Djalo, Henderson.

Stevenage: Jones, Lee, Franks, Wilkinson, Ogilvie, King, Schumacher, McAnuff (Hinds 78), Pett, Kennedy (McQuoid 68), Godden (Loft 97). Subs: Day, Gorman, Tonge, Cowans.
