World News – GB – Torquay United 2, Crawley Town 2 – FA Cup final episode: Watters equalizes for Reds after goalkeeper McGill stretches


Crawley Town boss John Yems wants the team to define their own FA Cup history as they take on Torquay United

Ashley Nadesan returned to the starting XI in place of Max Watters who dropped to the bench as Dannie Bulman started in midfield Tony Craig was captain of the side in George Francomb’s absence , who has a broken arm

Torquay beat Sholing 2-0 in the fourth qualifying round to tie with John Yems’ side

The hosts looked dangerous and in the 12th minute Jordan Tunnicliffe failed to put his head on the ball allowed Danny Wright to pass but his half volley was wide

The Reds had a good chance to take the lead when Nadesan hit the bar, but a great breakaway saw Aaron Nemane overtake the Crawley Town defense and pass McGill

Nadesan looked dangerous for the visitors and forced a corner from a sharp angle a few minutes after the goal

But it was the Gulls who scored next in the 24th minute Ben Whitfield drove forward and had plenty of room as he clinically passed McGill

Yems’ men fought back after the second goal and created chances but nothing clear and ex-Lewes, Whitehawk and Worthing goalkeeper Lucas Covolan looked dominant in the box

However, it was the Gulls who nearly went 3-0 in the 41st minute when Whitefield turned the Crawley defense in circles before hitting the crossbar, which would have left the Reds with a massive mountain to climb.

A lively start in the second half saw Crawley attacking straight away, but Nadesan couldn’t control Tom Nichols’ dangerous low cross in the Torquay area

But it took another bad turn for the Reds when John Yems was forced to make a switch when Tom McGill suffered a serious injury

McGill was left behind after a collision with Connor Lemonheigh-Evans and medical teams were called in

After an 18-minute stoppage, new recruit, 39, Stuart Nelson, replaced Brighton and 20-year-old Hove Albion

After the break both sides looked to attack but it was Torquay who still seemed more likely

The Yems also brought in Max Watters to replace Tyler Frost to add firepower up front

And it was the Reds who scored the next goal when Tom Nichols scored from the penalty spot after Nadesan was knocked down by Ben Wynter

Nichols then gave Watters a great chance to equalize, but the in-form forward shot Covolan directly

But in the 14th minute of added time, Watters made the difference with a calm finish after being put through
