Ashley Nathaniel-George and Filipe Morais hit second half goals as Crawley clinched their third win in four games with a 3-1 home victory over Yeovil.
The Reds, who have scored in every home game since Boxing Day, have now won both home matches since Gabriele Cioffi took charge.
Crawley keeper Glen Morris came to his side`s rescue early on by parrying a goal-bound shot from Olufela Olomola after good work by Alex Pattison.
Former Lincoln striker Ollie Palmer struck to give the hosts the lead on 26 minutes with his sixth of the season.
Palmer stabbed the ball home at the far post after a cross by Lewis Young has helped on by Luke Gambin.
Yeovil hit back to level three minutes before the break through Carl Dickinson, who fired low passed Morris after a pass by Olomola.
Recalled Crawley midfielder Mark Randall dragged a shot wide shortly after the break when set up by Gambin.
Palmer should have tested keeper Nathan Baxter before Olomola shot narrowly wide at the other end following a strong run.
Substitute Nathaniel-George restored Crawley`s lead in superb style by rifling home in the 68th minute from 25 yards.
Frenchman Filipe Morais then sealed victory deep into added time with a well-placed shot after being fed by Nathaniel-George.
