Crawley: Players could be sold
Crawley co-owner Susan Carter has warned fans the club will be forced to sell players if home attendances do not improve.
Manager Steve Evans, who has guided his side to a 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions, has previously stated that he has identified several possible additions.
But Carter is conscious of the financial restrictions in place and expressed her disappointment at the number of fans turning up to see the current npower League Two leaders.
Speaking to Crawley News, she said: "I would hate for us to have to sell a player for financial reasons, and we don't want to lose any of our best players as we are well placed in the league, but if the right price comes along I think every club is a selling club.
"At the moment we aren't hitting that so if fans want us to be able to retain our best players then they have to back us now. I think for a lot of fans this is an inconvenient truth but of course it will have a bearing on what we can do in the transfer window.
"We don't want to be in a position where we have to sell our best players but if our revenues don't increase we will take tough decisions."
