Luke Rooney set up their third goal which was nodded in by Jon Ashton.

Gavin Tomlin returned to the starting line-up after missing the last three games through injury.

Crawley took the opportunity of having a look at two triallists.

Manager Mark Yates said: “A few of the lads needed 90 minutes and it was a very worthwhile exercise. As a team we worked hard and deserved the result.”

The game was played on Tuesday at Wimbledon’s training ground.

Crawley Town: Preston, Trialist 1, Trialist 2, Ashton, Scales; Deacon, Jenkins, Rooney, Henderson; Barnard, Tomlin
