With the play-off spots in sight, the manager added that he’s looking to keep the squad settled.
“We’ve not had any inquires for our players and I’m certainly not looking to get rid of anyone.”
“I’ve got a tight-knit group with a great spirit and they’ve all done well to be where we are in the league at this time.”
