Signings will be a huge boost to us

I think the signings of Jorome Slew and Chris Dawson this week will be massive for us in the final few weeks of the season.

Both come with good pedigree and we’ll be looking to see what they can offer us.

Big things were planned for Chris at Leeds, but he suffered with some bad injuries.

He has been there and been around football at the top level, but at the same time he is still a young lad.

Chris has spent a year getting himself fit after an ACL injury, so he is hungry and ready to go.

Jorome is another great addition, having played in the divisions above and offering us something else going forward.

We will need everyone fit and hungry in what will be a challenging final few weeks of the season.

These midweek games will throw up a lot of strange results.

We have come unstuck a bit, South Shields have and I think Hyde will at some point.

If Hyde carry on the way they are going then they deserve great credit for what they will achieve.

It is all about keeping your nerve, but nobody ever gets it all their own way.

Another big plus for us is the return of Luke Dean, who played for a good chunk of Tuesday night’s win at Mossley.

Luke has done very well for us this season and if we can keep him fit then we’ll be in a good position.

We all know though, people will come in and people will come out because they will need a rest.

We just have to maintain our focus and hopefully get to where we want to be.
