There has been a lot of talk about transfers this week, but I don’t think it is that much of an issue.
My assistant Chris Bolder will be speaking to Brett Agnew from Brid, who has told everyone that he wants to stay there.
I have had a chat with Danny Frost at Ossett Town and he has opted to stay put as well.
But when you look at the players that we have coming back to full fitness then it isn’t much of a problem.
Alhassane Keita will be back on the field soon and we’ll have Craig Nelthorpe back to 100% after a hamstring strain.
People have asked why I went public with the fact that we had put seven days in and it is down to the fact that I think it needs to be out there.
In the past I’ve known situations when players haven’t been told about it. I want players to know that we want to speak to them.
We stuck to the rules 100%, so I don’t see what the problem is.
Moving on to our performance on Saturday at Prescot, I was very impressed by the fact that we won ugly.
With the teams around us having games in hand, it is important that we go to these places and pick up the points.
When it comes to it I’d rather have the points on the board, though if Farsley and Lancaster do win all these games then they deserve to win the league.
At the moment I’d rather keep going week to week rather than squeezing games in whenever possible.
The acid test comes when we have to play the teams around us in the table.
We have a game against Farsley and two against Lancaster, but there won’t be any easy encounters.
We pinched the result at Saturday’s opponents Radcliffe Borough earlier in the season, lets hope we can get a similar result on Saturday.
