Crawley Town striker Matt Harrold donned Brian Jensen’s Precision Goalkeeping gloves to play in goal for the entire second half against MK Dons.

Harrold won his first Man of the Match award for the club as only a 96th-minute equaliser denied them the win over MK Dons.

The 30-year-old replaced goalkeeper Jensen after he dislocated his finger in the 39th minute and, with no replacement on the substitutes’ bench, Harrold was told to go between the sticks.

“I’ve never played in goal before. Not even in training,” Harrold told BBC Surrey after the 2-2 draw.

“I got pressured into it because everyone just looked at me and said ‘you’re big’.

“It’s a bit embarrassing because it’s my first man of the match for the club. It was such a late goal to concede and we’re all devastated but we would have taken a point when I went in goal.

“It was a bit like playing with 10 men because we dropped deep and they hung high balls up at me but I did enjoy it. I felt comfortable in there in the second half after having a bit of a shocker when I first came on.”
