Former Aston Villa boss John Gregory is set to be named new manager of Crawley Town.

The Daily Mail says Crawley Town look set to appoint Gregory as their new manager.

Gregory spent four years at Villa Park but has not managed in England since his spell with Queens Park Rangers in 2007.

Crawley sacked previous boss Richie Barker after he led the side to seven matches without a win, a run of games in which they scored just one goal.
