Crawley Town defender Josh Yorwerth has returned home to Wales for ‘personal reasons’.

The former Ipswich Town and Cardiff City man was not included in the squad for Reds’ 1-0 victory over Blackpool on Saturday.

And head coach Dermot Drummy revealed he has allowed the 21-year-old to spend time back home with his family.

Yorwerth has made five League Two appearances for Crawley this season having signed a permanent one-year deal in the summer after a loan spell last season.

He last featured in the 3-0 defeat to Portsmouth at the start of September.

Drummy said: “Josh has just gone home to his family for a short spell. I’ve let him go home for personal reasons.

“Josh Payne is the same (as he was) and don’t even ask me about Jordan Roberts, I think he’s two weeks and four hours and three minutes away.”

Payne was at the game on Saturday in a protective boot, while Drummy believes Roberts is three weeks away from a return.
