Mansfield’s seven-match unbeaten run in League Two came to an end as substitutes Joe McNerney and Ibrahim Meite secured victory for Crawley.Steve Evans had not seen his side lose since October, but the run came to an end against his former club as the Reds earned just a third home win under boss Harry Kewell.Mansfield should have gone in front early on, but a tame shot from CJ Hamilton was cleared off the line by Josh Yorwerth.

Crawley top-scorer Jordan Roberts drove over from 20 yards, and was off-target from the edge of the area before team-mate Enzio Boldewijn fired into the side-netting.After the interval, Josh Payne put a free-kick over the crossbar, and went closer soon after from long range.Crawley broke the deadlock when Roberts crossed to the far post for half-time substitute McNerney who headed in his first goal of the season.Meiite sealed victory in the first minute of stoppage-time, rounding goalkeeper Conrad Logan and finishing into an empty net.Match report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsCrawley1Morris22Lelan15Yorwerth6ConnollySubstituted forMcNerneyat 45’minutes2Young4Payne25RandallSubstituted forBulmanat 90+2’minutes19Evina8SmithBooked at 42mins11Roberts7BoldewijnSubstituted forMeiteat 88’minutesBooked at 90minsSubstitutes3Doherty5McNerney12Mersin21Bulman23Verheydt24Lewis26MeiteMansfield1Logan16White2Bennett6Diamond19HuntSubstituted forPearceat 76’minutes10Anderson7MacDonaldBooked at 53mins11Atkinson22HamiltonSubstituted forButcherat 69’minutes32Rose15SpencerSubstituted forAngolat 59’minutesSubstitutes4Digby5Pearce8Mellis9Angol12Olejnik21Sterling-James24ButcherReferee:Gavin WardAttendance:1,791Match StatsHome TeamCrawleyAway TeamMansfieldPossessionHome48%Away52%ShotsHome14Away3Shots on TargetHome3Away2CornersHome4Away3FoulsHome13Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Crawley Town 2, Mansfield Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+8′ Second Half ends, Crawley Town 2, Mansfield Town 0.Posted at 90’+4′ Lee Angol (Mansfield Town) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Posted at 90’+4′ Foul by Josh Lelan (Crawley Town).Posted at 90’+3′ Alexander MacDonald (Mansfield Town) wins a free kick on the right wing.Posted at 90’+3′ Foul by Jimmy Smith (Crawley Town).BookingPosted at 90’+3′ Ibrahim Meite (Crawley Town) is shown the yellow card for excessive celebration.Posted at 90’+3′ Corner, Crawley Town.
