Sergio Torres: On target for Crawley in win over Crystal Palace

Ian Holloway's men are just a week into their pre-season fixtures, while Crawley have now played seven games this summer ahead of the start of the League One campaign next week.

Billy Clarke opened the scoring for the hosts when Gary Alexander's attempted shot ricocheted off a Palace defender and fell kindly for him to score past Julian Speroni.

Mat Sadler then rounded off a great afternoon for Crawley with a late volley, to leave Palace with a lot of work to do before the new Premier League season kicks off.
