Crawley 1-0 Eastbourne

Crawley survived an onslaught by Eastbourne to snatch victory, thanks to Jon-Paul Pittman's second-half strike.

Ashley Barnes was the first to threaten for the visitors but pulled his shot wide before Dan Smith fired over.

Ben Austin then saw his header from a Simon Wormull corner hit the crossbar as the visitors piled forward.

Crawley struck when Pittman smashed the ball in after meeting a low cross, and they held on after a close escape when Matt Crabb's shot hit the bar.
