Swansea were spared an embarrassing evening against npower League One side Crawley Town after Garry Monk produced a late winner in a 3-2 victory at Broadfield Stadium.

With the score level at 2-2 and extra-time beckoning, Monk nodded home a corner by Wayne Routledge in the 90th minute as Swansea evaded a third successive defeat.

The Barclays Premier League club looked on course for an easy night as their early dominance was rewarded when Miguel Michu pounced. But Josh Simpson and Hope Akpan struck to give Crawley, who lost to Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup two seasons ago, hope of humbling their top-flight opponents.
