Boss not ruling out bringing in one or two players before the ultimate deadline over loans.
Steve Davis says he may have to look again at the loan market before the ultimate deadline next month. The Alex boss certainly reshaped his squad in the January transfer market. Michael West, Gregor Robertson and Alan Martin all left the club by mutual consent and Lee Molyneux and Thierry Audel went out on loan to Accrington Stanley and Lincoln City respectively.
The Alex boss feels that he may need one or two before next month’s deadline as to not be caught out during the run-in if he suffers any more injuries. The club are currently without Max Clayton (ankle), Ryan Colclough (hernia) and Captain Abdul Osman (foot) and there are doubts over the fitness of the club’s on-loan striker from Watford Uche Ikpeazu after he rolled over on his ankle against Bradford City.
Before our mid-week trip to Stevenage, Steve told crewealex.net: “If it looks as though we are going to be struggling for numbers then we would look at bringing in one or two before the final deadline.
“We are mindful of the fact that if we were to suffer one or two more injures then we could be caught a bit short and we cannot afford that to happen. We would perhaps look to bring one or two in but we are also mindful of the fact that we could be welcoming some back in the matter of weeks.
“George Ray is getting there. Ollie Turton played for the Under-21s yesterday and Ryan Colclough isn’t a million miles off now. They will perhaps need a bit of time to get back into it and up to speed.
“I don’t want us to go down to the bare bones and left short so it is something we will consider going forward, but like all loan players they only really come out to play. If it necessary then we would do something.”
