Lunchtime update

31 January 2013

Danny Wilson spoke to the media at lunchtime on Thursday - transfer deadline day - here is the latest...

"Following Nick Blackman's departure, we will certainly be able to bring in one or two players on-loan or short term contracts.

"Getting players through the door in the timescale we have is very annoying because your targets can soon go elsewhere.

"When a player leaves as late as Nick has in the window it proves very difficult to bring in replacements, but we will continue to search.

"We remain hopeful of realistically bringing in one or two players before Friday's game.

"Bradley Wright-Phillips was on our radar but isn't anymore and that is because of costings. We have to be realistic and we can't bring players in who will take us over the Salary Cost Management Protocol (SCMP).

"There is nothing is the rumours about Mark (Duffy) of Scunthorpe United, we have our wide players already at the club.

"Lee (Williamson) was tremendous for us in my time here but times have moved on and so has Lee. There are reports that he has had offers and is currently considering those from teams in the Championship.

"Any goalscorer is difficult to replace and that is why they go for the money they do because they are at a premium.

"When you get one in and nurture him like we did with Nick, you always have one eye over your shoulder because someone will always be in a position to make a bid.

"It perhaps isn't the right time to bring a player in that needs nurturing, we need some experience but again those players are at a premium.

"It is going to be nip and tuck whether we can get the right person signed in time for the Coventry game.

"We aren't in a position to let anyone leave until we have added to the squad."
