Danilo Orsi scored twice as Crawley gained revenge for their 6-0 thrashing at Swindon at the end of August by easing to a 3-1 home victory.

The former Grimsby striker hit a goal in each half to put his improving side on 11 league wins for the season – matching the total they achieved in the whole of last term.

Crawley made an ideal start when leading scorer Orsi struck after only nine minutes, tapping in from close range in front of the travelling fans after a low cross by Adam Campbell.

Jack Roles marked his full league debut for Crawley by doubling the advantage after 26 minutes, giving goalkeeper Lewis Ward no chance with a half-volley from the edge of the area.

Swindon came to life late in the first half when Dan Kemp shot wide from a good position and in stoppage time keeper Corey Addai tipped a header from veteran striker Charlie Austin onto the bar.

Addai saved efforts by Williams Kokolo and Jake Young before Orsi made it 3-0 eight minutes after the interval with another simple finish after Ward could only parry a shot from Will Wright.

Addai later produced important saves as he parried a shot from substitute Jake Cain before denying Young, who should have found the target from close range.

Kemp, with his 16th of the season, grabbed a consolation for the Robins in the second minute of stoppage time with a low strike from 20 yards.
