As Jon Whitney and his backroom team continue to prepare for the upcoming Sky Bet League One campaign, the recently-appointed manager has spoken to BBC WM, and discussed his desire to make the club feel like a special place.

Speaking via BBC WM 95.6, Jon said; "We understand it'll be different this year. With the amount of players out of contract, it means we're not going to hit every one of them so we need to be ready and flexible.

"I want players to walk in here and know this can be a special place. Those coming in for pre-contract talks with me will notice there's an energy and that comes from me and all my staff.

"Financially we may not be able to compete with the big boys in this league but physically we can - team ethos, work ethic and discipline can stand for a lot in this league and that's what we're going to push."
