Crawley Town skipper Joe Walsh will not be banned from League 1 games.

He was sent-off during Reds’ 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Whitehawk.

The FA have confirmed the ensuing three-match ban will only apply to non-first team matches such as the Sussex Senior Cup.

This is good news for interim manager Dean Saunders who is already facing an injury crisis with no fit goalkeeper at the club due to Brian Jensen having dislocated his thumb.
