Coppell, 57, is being linked with a return to the Crystal Palace hotseat for a fifth time, following Dougie Freedman's departure to Bolton.

The Reds have no formal contract in place to keep Coppell at the club, but Barker hopes he will carry on his good work at the League One outfit.

"He is so enthusiastic about what we are doing here," Barker told the Crawley Observer. "When we chat at half-time, he means what he is saying. He is so enthusiastic about getting us to the next level.

"I know that he is held in high esteem at Palace but I hope he will bear in mind how well we get on and that might play a part in him staying."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
