Crawley defender Charlie Wassmer wants Craig Brewster to become the club's manager on a full-time basis after shedding light on his fractious relationship with former boss Steve Evans.

Wassmer was publicly criticised by Evans in the wake of the club's 6-0 defeat to Morecambe in September and made just two further appearances under the Scot, who made a surprise departure from the Red Devils last week to take the reigns at lower League Two counterparts Rotherham.

He told the Crawley Observer: "Steve Evans had his own way about things and Craig has come in and that's totally different. Hopefully we will get promoted under Craig. If you were to come to the training ground you would see a buzz, everyone has got a lot of respect for Craig, a lot of the boys want him to stay, hopefully he can be manager next year."

Speaking about his relationship with Evans, Wassmer said: "I did not get on with the old manager, he came out personally about me, since then we did not get on together - you don't always gel with people."

Earlier in the season, Wassmer was loaned out to Fleetwood and Dagenham, but he returned to Crawley starting line-up for Saturday's 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon under caretaker-boss Brewster.

He went on to say: "The club has got so much potential but I did not see myself as a player here. Like any other club, when someone else comes in you have such a great chance to try again.
