Grimsby 2-3 Crawley: Orsi returns to haunt former club in thriller
Crawley fought back from two goals behind to beat Grimsby 3-2, with a dramatic stoppage-time winner from Danilo Orsi against his former club proving decisive.
A frantic 12-minute spell in the first half at Blundell Park set the tone as goals from Gavan Holohan and Abo Eisa put the hosts in control, only for Liam Kelly and Ronan Darcy to reply immediately for Crawley.
Orsi then settled the Sky Bet League Two contest in the sixth minute of added time, lifting Crawley to fourth in the table.
Holohan grabbed the opening goal on 23 minutes as he reacted quickest after Eisa struck the post with a misguided cross.
Eisa made it 2-0 when he cut inside from the left-hand side and finished neatly for his fifth goal in eight games this season.
However, by the 35th minute, Crawley were back on level terms after two quickfire goals from Kelly – who sent a stunner into the top corner from 25 yards – and Darcy on the angle from 12 yards.
Adam Campbell and Darcy passed up chances for Crawley in the second half, before Orsi swept into the net late on to win it for the visitors.
