The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

CRAW­LEY Town boss Mark Yates has laid down a chal­lenge for mid­field duo Bob­son Bawl­ing and Conor Hen­der­son to earn their places in the Red Devils squad.

Bawl­ing, 20, has made seven ap­pear­ances for Craw­ley this sea­son, while 24-year-old Hen­der­son has fea­tured just three times, most re­cently to­wards the end of Septem­ber.

Both have been left out of Yates’ match­day squads al­to­gether in re­cent weeks and the Reds man­ager expects the young duo to work hard in or­der to change that.

“It’s just one of those things,” said Yates. “Un­for­tu­nately I can’t name ten or 11 subs.The door isn’t shut on them but they know they have to work and try to get back in.”

And Yates be­lieves it is a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion with former Southamp­ton striker Lee Barnard, who has had to wait pa­tiently for his op­por­tu­ni­ties, reg­u­larly stuck on the bench be­hind Matt Har­rold.

He added: “Matty has the shirt at the mo­ment and he has been do­ing pretty well, so Lee just has to be pa­tient and when that chance comes along, take it.”

LEFT OUT: Bob­son Bawl­ing
