Forest Green Rovers moved three points clear of the League Two relegation zone with a 2-1 comeback win over Crawley Town.

A Callum Morton double cancelled out Ronan Darcy’s opener to give Rovers only a second home win of the season.

The hosts had James Belshaw to thank for a string of fine saves to help Forest Green to all three points.

Crawley led when a short corner routine found Darcy in space before he drove a low effort that hammered in off the post on seven minutes.

Rovers found a leveller on 27 minutes when the impressive Morton shifted into a yard of space in the penalty area and fired under Town goalkeeper Corey Addai.

Morton doubled his tally seconds before the break when he ran onto a Kyle McAllister flick-on and calmly slotted home to give Rovers a first-half lead.

Forest Green goalkeeper Belshaw made a superb reaction save to deny Klaidi Lolos’ deflected effort on the hour-mark.

Forest Green came close to adding a third when he forced Addai into a fine diving stop but there were no more goals.
