TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY: Gaffer Hoping For At Least Two New Faces

31 August 2016

TOWN boss Paul Hurst is hopeful of adding to his squad before the transfer window slams shut on Wednesday night.

Speaking after watching his side concede five goals at The Banks' Stadium on Tuesday, he said: “I'm hopeful, but it's far from definite.

“We've got a couple in mind. We've got to try to strengthen. But I've had a couple of knock-backs in the past couple of days. I don't really want to bring somebody in that I'm not really going to use.”

But the gaffer finds it difficult to understand why some players don't want to come out from the respective clubs to play first team football.

He said: “Some I don't understand. It is a personal choice, but I don't particularly get the logic. Others, as we've said before, it's location.”

Paul was obviously bitterly disappointed after seeing his side concede five goals.  

“It's was very similar to what we've been witnessing so far - lots of goals,” he said.   

“We were cheap in possession of the ball and caused our own problems. Not taking anything away from Walsall, they obviously played some good football. They've got players that are comfortable in possession, but we certainly gave them a massive  hand up again.

“Unfortunately that's something that I am repeating too often.

“To say that we are only a few games in, it has got to change and it's got to change quickly,” he added.
