Make Do & Mend

Jack Ross has once again suggested that there’s very little money in the transfer kitty. When asked about further incomings he used phrases like “make the best of what we have got” and “one out, one in.”

Speaking after the Benfica B game in Albufeira, he said: “I spoke couple of weeks ago about it being a case of one out, one in, and that’s really where we are. I don’t think we are too top-heavy squad-wise and I wouldn’t want it to get too fat. We are not in a position where we can go and spend money on big transfer fees. There has to be a realisation that that’s where we are at and we have to build something and make the best of what we have got. When Donald Love left last week, that meant we were able to bring in Jordan Willis and that’s going to continue to be how we work it certainly for the foreseeable future, unless I am told any different.”

The manager also commented on Jordan Willis’ debut. Ross said: “Jordan did well. I think you could see from what Jordan did in that first 45 minutes the kind of player he is - he is fast and good in the air. He will probably start our next friendly on Saturday just to try and get some more minutes into him.”
