Match Report

 Crawley blew MK Dons away for the second time in a matter of days as a 5-1 victory at Stadium MK and an 8-1 win on aggregate booked them a place at Wembley for the first time in the club's history.

Scott Lindsey's side had established a 3-0 first-leg lead in West Sussex on Tuesday night, and that was extended to 5-0 within the first half-hour in Buckinghamshire, courtesy of Jay Williams and Danilo Orsi.

Three minutes in, Williams stormed forward from midfield, pinched the ball from Alex Gilbey and squeezed a shot into the bottom left corner under pressure to send the away end of over 1,600 into raptures. MK enjoyed spells of possession after that, but they were passive with it and so it came as little surprise when Crawley - who looked like the home side - established a 5-0 aggregate lead with Orsi taking advantage of Dan Harvie's misjudging of a bounce and firing in his22nd goal in all competitions this season.
