Moore hoping to keep squad together ahead of transfer deadline

Darren Moore says he hopes he can keep Wednesday’s current squad together ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline day.

Moore talked after Saturday’s win over Forest Green about the influence advisors can have on players in terms of possible transfer dealings at such times in the season.

When asked after tonight’s game at Bradford whether he has spoken to chairman Dejphon Chansiri about interest in some of the squad, he said: “We have spoken. Everybody has their price at the end of the day and I am fully aware of that.

“We will see how the next couple of days play out. For me, I am ready for the window to close. I understand how it all works in football.”

On tonight’s EFL Trophy defeat, Moore said: “It was an evenly-fought game but I am disappointed with the goals.

“We lost David Agbontohoma at half time which jolted the balance of the team. When I look at the two second half goals, they could have been defended better.

“It was a little bit of naivety from our youngsters in those situations but still you expect them to do better.”

Referring to Michael Smith’s return from injury and a debut for loanee Alex Mighten, he said: “You want your number nine scoring, Michael stuck the spot kick away and I thought his all-round game was good.

“It was good for the fans to see Alex Mighten get 80 minutes tonight. Him and Mallik Wilks will give us good movement.”
