So as we thought, no new deadline day deals were done and it looks like the only glimmer of hope of new faces will be through a non-contracted player (of which there are a growing number admittedly) or a loan. It’s a disappointment but we have to still get the most of out what we do have at the club. I was impressed at the summer signings and those players don’t turn into bad ones overnight. Tactics and motivation as well as that discipline problem are the key things that need tackling straight away.
It’s on to MK Dons in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy this evening in a match that will struggle to even be on the radar such is our shocking away form and early disinterest from most in the competition. Maybe time to try one or two new things out?
Elsewhere in League Two…
Former Cobblers loanee Jamie Reckord became Plymouth’s second signing of the day when he joined on a three month loan deal from Wolves. Reckord played seven times for Town in 2011.
Southend United have brought in Fulham’s Cauley Woodrow on a one month loan deal. Striker Woodrow has been capped at England Under 17s level, becoming the first non-league player to achieve such a feat (he was with Luton Town at the time).
And Cheltenham Town have bolstered their ranks by signing midfielder David Noble from Rotherham United on loan until January whilst also extending the contract of defender Ryan Inniss.
The window is…shut!
