Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; “I won’t catastrophize after the Rochdale loss but I do understand that I have to look at strengthening in certain areas. I am looking to bring in one or two before Sheffield United, but everyone is after new faces.

"I understand the position I am in and the ball park I have to compete in. I have approached a couple but I have to see what happens over the coming weeks.

"I am looking for a couple and I do think we need a defender. We need a bit more strength there. Kory has done really well. And we have got Matty Preston but if Jimmy is out we lack experience there. I need to make sure we cover all our bases."

Jon went on to discuss the new transfer regulations which mean clubs from the EFL can only sign players, both permanently and on-loan, during the two transfer windows, you can read the full interview, HERE.
