Striker Matt, 32, joined the club in June 2014 from Bristol Rovers.

Matt has started more than 250 games in a League career that began 12 years ago at Brentford.

Since then he has represented Dagenham & Redbridge, Grimsby, Yeovil, Southend United, Wycombe Wanderers – where he scored 22 goals in 77 appearances – Shrewsbury Town and Bristol Rovers. He arrived there in 2011 and made 71 starts and scored 17 goals.

He was a regular for Reds in the 2015/16 season, scoring nine goals before he underwent knee surgery in April that year. Two months later he signed a new one-year contract with the Reds but spent more time on the sidelines following Achilles surgery.

Matt took up the role as player-manager on the final day of the 2016/17 season in a memorable 2-2 draw with Mansfield Town.
