John Gregory admits he is still looking to strengthen his squad after another good pre-season workout at Woking.

The Reds beat Conference premier opposition 2-1 to make it four wins and two draws from seven games for a new-look squad which includes 15 signings.

Gregory admits he is still a little short in terms of where he wants to be squad wise and hinted he could offer terms to trialists Anthony Stewart and Charles Banya.

Both made their second appearance for the Crawley, having played in Monday’s win at Three Bridges.

Stewart is out of contract at Wycombe Wanderers but, being under the age of 24, is likely to command a fee while winger Banya is a free agent after being released by Fulham.

Gregory said: “I’m reasonably happy at the moment. I could still do with two players. You are always looking to improve but we have the rest of August up until the deadline when I would like to have possibly one or two.

“Little Charlie did all right tonight and Anthony when he came on looked solid. He won a lot of headers. There are two lads there we are looking at, they are not huge salaries. They might be two more we might consider bringing into the club over the next week or so.

“I have to consider the budget and make sure we don’t go overspending. There is no point trying to produce a team if we can’t support it financially.

“Pellegrini has gone out and bought this summer. He just won the Premier League and is in the Champions League this year but he has gone out and bought. We are always going to be two players away.”
