Last updated : 09 January 2016
Cambridge crash as Matt Harrold winner extends Crawley runMatt Harrold hit the only goal as Crawley continued their fine home run with a 1-0 victory over Cambridge.Harrold's fifth goal of the season in the first half made it seven wins out of their last eight home league games for the Red Devils.Cambridge right-back Darnell Furlong, making his debut on loan from QPR, came to his side's rescue early on with a well-judged tackle to rob Harrold on the edge of the area.Keeper Will Norris, called up for his first appearance of the season, parried a clever cross from George Smith before the visitors threatened through Rory Gaffney.The striker raced through to collect a pass by Barry Corr and was one on one but was denied by veteran keeper Daryl Flahavan.Midfielder Harrison Dunk later had a shot blocked before Conor Newton put the ball into the side-netting.Harrold, who had an unsuccessful loan stint at Cambridge last season, struck to put Crawley ahead nine minutes before the break from close range after Lee Barnard drove in a low ball into the six-yard box.Cambridge midfielder Luke Berry went close to equalising shortly after the break when his rasping 20-yard shot cannoned back off the post.Gaffney and Newton later both put shots wide for Cambridge but, despite greater possession, United failed to create clear-cut opportunities
