Matt Tubbs: Crawley Town extend Bournemouth striker's loan deal

Crawley Town have extended the loan spell of Bournemouth striker Matt Tubbs until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old re-joined the Reds on a one-month deal earlier this month and featured for the first time since his return in Sunday's draw at Coventry.

Tubbs scored 58 goals in 78 appearances during an 18-month stay in West Sussex before joining the Cherries in 2012.

"In the 10 days or so he's been here, I have been absolutely delighted with Matt," Reds boss John Gregory said.

He added: "His attitude has been first class in training and we saw on Sunday what he has to offer on the pitch, when I thought he was excellent.

"Matt loves this club, as our fans know, and he is delighted to have sorted out an extension to the loan.

"I must also thank AFC Bournemouth for their help and co-operation. It's a deal which suits all parties."
