Dean Saunders will be in charge for Crawley Town’s English League One trip to Colchester United after the Welshman temporarily replaced boss John Gregory.
Gregory, who took over at Crawley in December last year, had endured a dreadful season with the West Sussex side.
Crawley have won just five league games this season and currently sit 21st in the English third tier.
A 4-1 league loss to Leyton Orient on Friday marked their 10th league loss of the campaign, with Gregory stepping down a day later for health reasons.
The former Aston Villa manager is scheduled to undergo open heart surgery in early January, but is expected to return to Crawley when he has recovered.
Former Doncaster Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Saunders has come in on a temporary basis, and now looks to end Crawley’s 10-game winless run when they face Colchester, who are two places below them in the relegation zone.
