Crawley head coach John Yems has insisted his side will come out fighting, despite being down to the bare bones.

They travel to Scunthorpe this afternoon (1pm), after losing three successive games in League Two.

The Reds had another couple of injury concerns in their defeat to Carlisle on Tuesday as Ashley Nadesan and Jack Powell were taken off.

Yems was already without Tom Dallison, Tyler Frost, Sam Mathews, Jordan Tunnicliffe and Reece Grego-Cox ahead of their trip to Carlisle.

However, Yems has insisted that his side will keep on fighting despite the number of injuries they have.

He said: “It is difficult when you have got players that are not fit coming into the side.

“The starting line-up we have had to change with Nadders and Jack Powell having to come off.

“It is no excuse we are down to the bare bones, we have got to keep the shape and keep rotating which is difficult.

“But then it is difficult for everybody, but will we come out fighting yes we will.”
