side Crawley knocked Stoke out of the Carabao Cup on penalties.

Stoke, who are second bottom of the Championship, opened the scoring against the run of play when Sam Vokes deflected Liam Lindsay’s shot into the net.

Nathan Ferguson equalised before half-time, given time to drill past goalkeeper Adam Federici.

Stoke’s Nathan Collins was sent off for a late challenge on Panutche Camara shortly after the hour mark, but Crawley could not capitalise on the extra man.

However, they scored every one of the five penalties in the shootout after Vokes had missed Stoke’s opening attempt.

Stoke manager Nathan Jones: “For 45 minutes, that’s as bad a performance as I’ve had since I’ve been a manager.

“No commitment, desire. A few performances out there were a real eye-opener. We got out-battled and out-fought a bit.

“We made a lot of changes but were still strong enough. Some of those players, it might be a while before they play.

“Whether they don’t want to play for me, or it was just playing poorly, you will have to ask Sherlock Holmes. I don’t know.”
