Crawley are preparing to welcome 1,302 fans back to the People’s Pension Stadium.

They might also have an FA Cup third round tie to host after winning 2-1 at AFC Wimbledon yesterday.

Ashley Nadesan and Max Watters scored to secure a comeback victory at the Dons’ new stadium.

Nadesan produced a cleverly chipped finish to cancel out Joe Pigott’s headed opener.

He was also involved in the winner, crashed home from point bank range by Watters as Dons claimed a foul.

Success over League One hosts capped an upbeat few days which also saw the club make plans after being placed in tier two as part of the exit from lockdown.

They can accommodate 651 fans at a test event when Barrow visit a week on Saturday.

If tiers remain the same, that figure will be doubled to 1,302 - beginning with the fixture against Bradford City on Tuesday, December 15.

Once season ticket holders have confirmed attendance, tickets will be available via a membership scheme and possibly even general sale.

The club today advertised for matchday stewards and turnstile operators.

Gerneral manager Tom Allman said: “I’m delighted that all the hard work undertaken over the course of lockdown is now starting to come to fruition.”

Eastbourne Borough suffered their first Vanarama National League south defeat since the opening day, going down 1-0 at home to St Albans.
