Scott Lindsey says he might allow emotion to kick in at Wembley - but only AFTER the football is over.

The Crawley boss is preparing his side to face Crewe in the League Two play-off final on Sunday.

Last time he was at the national stadium was a successful play-off with Forest Green in 2017 – as his wife Hayley, who has since died from cancer, watched proudly.

Lindsey said: “It was a really good memory.

“My wife, who since passed away, was in the crowd.

“I’m not an emotional person, I really struggle with that.

“But I will probably look in that area where I know she was sitting.

“I am so focussed on the game but I am sure there will be some emotions at the end when it is all done, no matter what the result.”

Lindsey hopes to see Reds cheered on by more than 20,000 fans – and they were heading towards that number last night.

He added: “Even at what we are now, it is an incredible effort.

“The fans have been fantastic all season and I am really pleased we are rewarding them with a great day out and let’s hope we are celebrating at the end of it.

“Let’s get them all on board. It really is a special place, this.

“We have got some great lads here and the fans are unreal.

“Be part of that.”
