Crawley Town have extended the loan of central midfielder Chris Atkinson for another month.

The 23-year-old Crewe player made four appearances for Reds during his initial month, two of which were off the bench.

He will now be at the club until March 9, which means he will be available for selection for their next five Sky Bet League 2 games.

Manager Mark Yates said: “He’s done pretty well. I thought he was really good on Saturday, he was competitive, showed some good energy and I am happy he is staying for for another month.

“With three players still injured we are a little light on numbers at the moment and Chris will have an important part to play for us over the next few weeks.”
