Jack Ross still hasn’t given up hope of bringing in more players before the window slams shut, namely Wigan midfielder, Max Power: "We may still be able to get a little bit done," Ross said. "We're working hard. We may do some business today. If we had everyone fit, we would be in a relatively good position. At the moment, we are a bit light in forward areas. Jerome is out for a few weeks. Charlie Wyke is progressing but his return won't be around the corner. For me, it has been an ongoing process to get the right players in. The loan window is open longer. It is that balance between bringing someone in short term and where they stand you in the long term. Even if we don't do anything today the pursuit of adding to the forward area will continue in the loan market. There are no more (today, outgoing) that I'm aware of. I think in terms of ins and outs, we will know for certain at the end of the month when the loan window closes."
The manager also gave an injury update. “We’re expecting Donald Love to be out for around four weeks, and we think Jerome Sinclair will be between four to six. It’s a blow for Jerome personally and it’s a blow for us because we don’t have that many options available in that area of the pitch. In terms of where we are fitness wise, none of the ones we had unavailable last weekend will be available this weekend. We can add Donald and Jerome to that, so we have less available players than we did last weekend and we are pretty stretched at the moment. Hopefully Reece and Dylan will be available next week, if not for Sheffield Wednesday then for the game on Sunday.”
Meanwhile, Hull have denied that they ever wanted Lee Cattermole. Can we not even give him away? Hull boss, Neil Adkins said: "There is no truth in the Cattermole links and there never has been any truth. He’s never been on our list.”
