Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that he is trying to hold firm against a short-list he has drawn up for players he would like to bring in during the January transfer window. The Glovers are now approaching the halfway point in the period clubs have to line up permanent signings and long term loans, but so far have drawn a blank since the quick surge of arrivals that came in around New Year's Day.
Skiverton last week revealed that he had been looking to bring in a striker and a midfielder. However, he told BBC Somerset that he was determined to hold out for a pair of players that would make a difference, even if that meant that his current squad were stretched on numbers:
"I've got a list and I'm trying to stick to it. What I'm not doing is short-term fixes where you just get in for getting one in's sake. We've been like that so far, and the ones that we've known about we've gone out and got. I'd rather get those ones. I'd rather be a little bit short (on numbers in the playing squad) and get the ones I want, than to just fill the bench up. I don't want that. We've got away with it so far, but we definitely need to add to the squad because we're a little light in a couple of areas, and we need to make sure that the team can move on."
