Darren Moore is not rushing into a decision over whether to bring in a replacement for loanee Mark McGuinness after today confirming he has returned to Cardiff.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s match at Wycombe, Moore said losing the defender is a blow but that it now represents an opportunity for “one or two others already here to step into his shoes”.
When asked further about the possibility of using the January transfer window to bring in a replacement, the manager said: “Let’s have a look in the next few weeks. The proof will be in the pudding.
“We’ll have a look at the results that we get with the personnel we have got and there will be a clear signal then whether we feel we have got enough or not.”
On tomorrow’s game, Moore confirmed that Lee Gregory is fit to rejoin the squad after his lay-off with a back problem while Barry Bannan continues to make progress after his muscle injury but remains sidelined.
We go into the Wycombe match in second place on 52 points, five behind leaders Plymouth but with a game in hand and two clear of third-placed Ipswich … with the Tractor Boys taking on Plymouth at Portman Road tomorrow.
Wycombe have recovered from a slow start to the season and are now seventh in the table, one place and two points from the play-offs.
