Crawley Town have signed young Wolves goalkeeper Scott Dutton on a month’s loan.

The 19-year-old will go straight into the Reds squad for tomorrow’s league trip to Fleetwood Town.

Manager Dean Saunders has made the signing as back-up to Crystal Palace loanee Lewis Price, due to Brian Jensen thumb injury.

The 39-year-old was the only keeper on Crawley’s books when he was forced off with a dislocated thumb against MK Dons.

Dutton was awarded his first professional contract by Wolves in 2014 and has been part of the Molineux club’s development squad this season.

Saunders said: “Scott has got a good reputation at Wolves as an excellent young goalkeeper and coming to us for the next few weeks will help his development.

“We’re pleased to have him with us to provide competition for the jersey with Lewis Price and gain valuable experience.”
