Crawley caretaker boss John Yems plans to make more signings in a bid to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.

The Reds are now just four points above the drop zone after conceding an injury-time goal in their 3-2 defeat at Weymouth last night.

Former Wigan striker Hassan Solaiman came off the bench to make his debut in the closing stages but could not prevent a third defeat in the last four games.

Solaiman has been training with the Reds for the last month but was signed on the eve of last night's match to strengthen a strike force weakened by injuries to Lloyd Blackman and Elliot Benyon.

Blackman underwent surgery on a groin operation yesterday and is likely to be out for five weeks while Benyon picked up a knock in the defeat at Morecambe at the weekend.

Yems said: "We need to get more players in, simple as that. We are looking at quite a few players at the moment and will be hoping to make more signings in the near future.

"After a performance like that there is no doubt we need to strengthen the squad and we have got to do it quickly because there isn't much time left.

"Solaiman will give us pace up front and he gives us more options."
