Crawley Town's 'Devils Trust' supporters group is preparing a bid.
Crawley Town's 'Devils Trust' supporters group is preparing a £100,000 bid to oust current owners the Majeeds from control at Broadfield Stadium.
The brothers appear on the verge of steering the club out of administration, though are relying upon the Inland Revenue to accept an offer of 25p in the pound to all creditors.
The Trust has received big-money pledges in excess of six figures, and has the option of working with former Bishops Stortford owner John Goodwin, who is happy to share control of the club having originally staked a claim to buy the Sussex outfit back in March.
On Monday morning, a Trust spokesman said: "Everyone who has and understanding of the current situation will be aware that there is no real future under the present ownership.
"Our major concern is that the club is safe hands and the best way to achieve that is by having a say about how the club is run."
The Majeeds claim to be owed £750,000 by the club.
On the pitch, Crawley are making attempts to land Barnet striker Ben Strevens (pictured).
