In an upbeat statement today, Chairman Hearn has hinted srongly that funds are available to strengthen the squad for a promotion challenge. He is quoted thus:

"We cannot ignore the fact that Martin Ling has assembled a very good team here. We are short on numbers because that is realism. We have spent a lot of money on the players we have here because that is the budget.

"We think we might, just might, cause a few surprises at the end of this season. If Martin needs anybody he can have him. I am not being unrealistic when I say there is a play-off team within this squad.
