Tubbs keeping "options open" ahead of return to Broadfield
Former Crawley striker Matt Tubbs admits he is keeping his “options open” as he prepares for his first return to the Broadfield Stadium tonight.
Tubbs has endured a frustrating time since moving to Bournemouth for a fee believed to be in the region of £800,000 in January and has recently been linked with a possible return to Crawley.
The 28-year-old has started just two league games this season and has found himself behind the likes of Lewis Grabban, Josh McQuoid and Lee Barnard in the pecking order.
He is ensured of a warm welcome as Crawley look to heap more misery on the struggling Cherries tonight after blasting 58 goals in 78 games in two and a half years at Broadfield Stadium.
Asked whether he regrets leaving Reds, who went on to clinch promotion from League Two last season and are now 11 places above Bournemouth in League One, Tubbs said: “It is a tough question. When you look back you can ask was it right or not?
“Crawley have gone from strength to strength but I got the opportunity to sign for my home town club and I think anyone would have done the same in that situation.
“I will always keep my options open as that is what you have got to do as a player. There is no point saying you are never going to move on as you can get stuck in a rut and fall out of love with football.”
