A lifeline has been handed to Crawley Town’s five transfer listed players.

Captain Josh Simpson, goalkeeper Brian Jensen, Matt Harrold, Lewis Young and Conor Henderson were put on the list in November by then-manager John Gregory.

However, new interim boss Dean Saunders included four of the five in his starting line-up against Colchester, with only the injured Simpson absent.

Saunders said: “Everybody has got a clean sheet with me because different managers see different things and play different ways. The boys who were on the transfer list, I will have to have a chat with them.

“I want players here who want to win are committed to the club and want to play for the club, not themselves. Sacrifice your own game.”
