Crawley have made their seventh signing in the space of a month by taking Brentford midfielder Darius Charles on loan until April.

The 19-year-old, who joined Brentford as a trainee in 2004, has made 14 appearances this season but has not been involved since the 2-0 defeat to Swansea on New Year's Day.

Charles goes straight into the squad for today's Conference trip to St Albans, although the game is in doubt with four inches of snow covering the Clarence Park pitch yesterday.
