It seems that nothing has changed in terms of the winter transfer window since speaking to manager Paul Simpson on Thursday afternoon last week as he confirmed once again that he’s hoping for a quiet few days.
“In my head I’m thinking that our business is done,” he said. “I’m not thinking we’ll be doing anything. There’s still a few days, who knows, but at this moment my head’s saying we’re not.
“If something comes in, I’m certainly in a position to say no. I don’t even want to think about it. We’ll react to any situation, but I don’t want that to happen.
“My focus is that we have a game on deadline day. We’ll approach it with that mentality - of a game, it’s a big game for us, a really good game to look forward to.
“So, nobody can contact me in the hours of the game, and I’m hoping it’s a nice, quiet day for us. I’ll just prepare for Barrow during that day and on Monday.
“In fact, this week I’ve got to go to a school and do a talk for the reception class on Tuesday morning, I’ve got some community stuff to do. Then I’ll just get ready for the game and hope the players are right.
“The big day for us is Monday, making sure our preparation is right. If we do that right and the players are right then Tuesday will take care of itself.
“We don’t have to panic or act because we had a plan. We’ve been working right through from August to this point now, identifying where we might need strengthening.
“It only comes to light in the last three or four weeks that players are going to be going back, the loan players, but we were ready for whatever came. I think we’ve done some really good business to add to what I think is already a good group.”
