Steve Evans wants fifth striker at Crawley Town

Crawley Town manager Steve Evans hopes to sign another striker before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

The Reds have brought in 15 new faces for more than £320,000 over the summer but Evans is still hoping to strengthen his attacking options.

He told BBC Sussex: "We'd like to bring another striker in. We'll need five if we are going to challenge.

"We're talking about smashing the Conference record to try and get the right player in."

He added: "We're working so, so hard. That's testament to [co-owners] Bruce Winfield and Susan Carter. They've been absolutely fantastic.

"We might be in a position where we can freshen it up. It won't be for the want of trying."

Evans has been frustrated by continuing to have his transfer bids rejected by rivals in the Blue Square Bet Premier, after refusals by AFC Wimbledon and Rushden & Diamonds to accept his offers.

"We've found a third Conference club who say they won't sell to Crawley Town," he said.

Crawley currently lie seventh in the table after Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Bath City.
