McAllister opened the scoring for Crawley in the first half
By Saj Chowdhury
Sergio Torres' injury-time strike handed non-league Crawley a famous win over Championship side Derby in the third round of the FA Cup.
Derby missed the chance to take the lead when Kris Commons had a penalty saved by goalkeeper Michel Kuipers.
Instead Craig McAllister put Crawley ahead from eight yards, but Miles Addison equalised with a header.
With a replay looking likely, Torres side-footed in from a corner to hand Crawley a fourth-round tie at Torquay.
Derby may well reflect on how the game would have gone had they scored the 10th-minute spot-kick, given after veteran Dutch keeper was deemed to have clipped the legs of Chris Porter, even though the challenge looked quite innocuous.
Derby's star player Commons stepped up but struck his kick straight at Kuipers. For many of the 4,145 present inside Broadfield Stadium, justice had been served.
The Blue Square Bet Premier side, sitting second in the table, coped better with the stormy weather and created more clear-cut chances than their higher-ranked opponents.
They took a deserved lead on the half-hour mark and the weather played its part in the build-up.
Kuipers's long punt, given extended flight by the wind, baffled the Derby defence, but not Scot McAllister who swept in after John Brayford failed to clear.
The scorer came close to adding a second, but he was denied by a brilliant block by Ben Pringle, who was one of Derby's better players on the night.
After the break, Crawley's top scorer Tubbs forced a low save from Stephen Bywater before the keeper repeated the feat to keep out Scott Neilson's effort.
Neilson had earlier also fired a header against the bar as Crawley looked to add their own giant-killing credit to the third-round roll of honour.
However, midway through the second-half it seemed their hopes were blunted when Addison powerfully headed in Commons's right-wing free-kick.
It was Addison's first goal of the campaign, having missed most of last season and much of this season with a foot problem.
As the minutes ran down, it appeared that a return trip to Pride Park would have to be added to Crawley's diary.
But there was still enough time for one more heroic act.
Dean Howell laid a low left-wing corner into the path of Argentine Torres who showed all the deftness of touch of his namesake Fernando, to slot in from 20 yards.
