Transfer & Injury Update

21 February 2013

Manager Keith Hill says it is “unlikely” that there will be any new additions to the squad ahead of this weekend’s trip to Barnet.

The Gaffer hinted last week that he would like to recruit at least one more player, but he says he doesn't expect any new faces for Saturday's match at the Underhill Stadium.

“It’s unlikely [that we’ll recruit before the weekend] but we’ve got plenty of irons in the fire,” said Hill. “We’ve got to appreciate the hard work that players have done so far and whether I do or do not recruit it will just be competition for places. 

“Players work themselves into a team and they can work themselves out of a team. I’ve got to give the players a fair and equal opportunity and I feel as though I’ve done that and that I’m getting a little pay back from the players that I’ve put a little bit of trust in so that trust has got to remain. 

“The players know that performances, both individually and collectively, will bring us success and them success, so it’s a win/win situation bringing players in because it brings competition for places.”

Skipper Peter Cavanagh missed Saturday’s League Two encounter against Torquay United due to a calf problem and Hill says it will be next week before he returns to training: “He’s had a pain killing injection into his calf but he’ll probably be fit enough to train with us next week.”
