Two goals in the final seven minutes earned Crawley a dramatic 2-2 draw against Coventry in the Sky Bet League 1 at Sixfields.

A Joe Walsh own goal and a Franck Moussa header looked to have secured all three points for the Sky Blues, but goals from Jamie Proctor and Adam Drury was enough to earn the visitors a share of the points in a thrilling comeback.

After a dominant first half, the Sky Blues took the lead when Carl Baker's set-piece was met by the head of Andy Webster, and his touch was diverted in by the head of Walsh in the 40th minute.

Moussa doubled the advantage from a similar set-play in the 82nd minute as he headed in Webster's touch on the line to make it 2-0.

Former Swansea striker Proctor was brought on by manager John Gregory to replace Gary Alexander and he had an instant impact on the game, scoring a header a minute later.

But with just three minutes to go the Sky Blues failed to clear a corner allowing Drury to finish in the six-yard box.
