Twice Jake Hessenthaler cancelled out strikes by the home side - but Rovers, who have had a flying start to the season, took full control in the second half.

Nicky Cadden's first minute goal was levelled up by Hessenthaler, who got his second - and third in two games - after Mathew Stevens put Green back in front.

Crawley caved in after the break as Jamille Matt (48), Nicky Cadden (67 and 69) and Jake Young (79) put them 6-2 to the good. New man Kwesi Appiah pulled a further goal back four minutes from time on his debut but Town were well beaten.
