As such Matty Blair and Sean McGinty have been sent back to their parent clubs, slightly ahead of their loans ending with James Hurst sent back to his parent club a couple of weeks early, however Wilder hasn't officially ended his loan so could still recall him.
Blair has returned to Fleetwood, with him missing at the weekend anyway due to injury and Sean McGinty sent back to Sheffield United whereas Hurst is training with Crawley again.
Wilder told the official website: 'I would like to thank both players for their efforts.
